How #TOGETHERBAND is helping bring healthcare closer

With World Child Cancer

#TOGETHERBAND supports charities and organisations such as The Power of Nutrition by raising awareness around what they do, as well as funding through band sales.

What they do: Improve treatment access and provide emotional and financial support to children with cancer and their families. They do that by twinning staff and hospitals in resource rich countries with those with limited resources to train healthcare workers and improve treatment standards.

Their aim: Give equal access to the best possible treatment and care for every child with cancer.
