In the UK 10 children are told that they have cancer every day. The charity CLIC Sargent organises Childhood Cancer Awareness Month every year in order raise awareness of cancer in children and improve the support available to cancer sufferers and their families.
After intensive cancer treatment a holiday could be just the thing
A family holiday can be a good chance to relax after the trauma and stress of cancer treatment. As long as doctors agree, a holiday is a great way for children with cancer and their families to take a break, recharge and enjoy some special time together.
If you do get the opportunity to enjoy a family holiday abroad it’s very important to get appropriate travel insurance which includes cover for your child’s cancer, as well as any other pre-existing medical conditions.

It pays to cover the whole family on the same travel insurance policy
If you are travelling with an adult or child with a pre-existing medical condition, including cancer, it pays to cover everyone on the same travel insurance policy.
Covering the whole family or group on the same travel insurance policies means that you will all be covered if you were forced to cancel the holiday due to one travellers pre-existing medical condition.
If you are all covered on different travel insurance policies this is unlikely to be the case.
