Last year His Royal Highness, Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO was accompanied by the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester Sir Warren J. Smith KStJ JP and was shown the research laboratories and met with staff, volunteers and Kidscan’s young ambassador.

Sir Warren Smith has been an advocate of the work we do at Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research and on the evening shared his insight into why he decided to support Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research.

“Sir Warren spoke of his delight in becoming Principal Patron of Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research Charity and spoke of the need to fund essential research as well as assist in the funding of PhD students who wish to help Kidscan in the breakthrough of treating cancers affecting children, and by doing so, enable more children to thrive into adulthood without the trauma and disabilities that presently surround treatment of childhood cancers.”

Martin Keelagher, Chair of Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research, commented; “It is an honour and privilege, for Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research, to welcome such a prestigious and well-respected individual, in our Lord Lieutenant, Sir Warren Smith KCVO KStJ JP, as our first Patron of the charity.

We are especially humbled by Sir Warren’s kind words and the keen interest that he has already shown in supporting us, during His Royal Highness’, Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, Earl of Forfar KG, GCVO, CD, ADC, to Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research last year and Sir Warren’s continued support, through raising awareness of the vital, dedicated children’s cancer research, that Kidscan supports, ensuring that young people not only survive cancer but thrive after it.”
