About Us

The aim of the Christian Blandford Fund is to improve the comfort of children and their families, particularly those affected by cancer, during prolonged stays in NHS hospitals. More info on what we do and things we’ve done.

Christian Blandford has been through cancer twice. He was diagnosed with a clear cell sarcoma of the kidney, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer, in January 2005 when he was just 18 months old. After a grueling year of treatment, he was given the all clear but unfortunately relapsed in November 2006 when  the cancer spread to a bone in his leg.

His second round of surgery, chemo and radiotherapy in 2007 was even more intensive and demanding than the first, but thankfully Christian has been out of  remission since September 2012.

He’s a happy young man who enjoys playing piano, writing computer games, cooking and playing with his boxer dog, Roxy and his little sister, Jessica. You can read more about Christian and his treatment here.
