Henry Dancer Days raises funds to help children and young people 18 years and under who are living with active treatment for Primary Bone Cancer (primarily Osteosarcoma or Ewing’s Sarcoma) or in palliative care as a result of Bone Cancer. Funds are to help with transport costs, general hardship or alternatively, for a visit to a favourite place or memory making.

The maximum gift is £250 – this can be offered every 6 months to those in palliative care. The turnaround time from receipt of completed application is 4 – 8 weeks. Applications are to be made through a medical professional.

About our grants

We provide grants to families of children with primary bone cancer, 18 years of age and under. These grants provide essential support to families during an extremely difficult time. Families can choose to use the grant in the way they feel is most appropriate. Often, they are used to help with transport costs, to make their home more accessible for their child or to help fund a once-in-a-lifetime family trip.

Apply for a grant

Applications for grants should be made through a healthcare professional who completes the application form on the family’s behalf. This may be:

  • A Young Lives vs Cancer Worker
  • A Macmillan Nurse
  • A Marie Curie Nurse
  • An Oncology Consultant

Please note that individuals cannot apply on behalf of a family. All referrals must be made via a healthcare professional.
