What We Fund
The Azaylia Foundation was created to fight childhood cancer. We are committed to advancing early diagnosis and new treatment
availability in the UK through institutional donations, while at the same time supporting UK-based children fighting cancer with
individual treatment donations, when treatments required are not covered by the NHS.
Advancing early diagnosis and new treatment availability for childhood cancer, which is currently severely underfunded in the UK, is our key area of focus and our strongest opportunity to save children’s lives. The Azaylia Foundation considers funding proposals for childhood cancer research, training, equipment and clinical trials from UK medical institutions. To discuss potential funding proposals, please email [email protected] to the attention of our CEO.
For individual treatment cases, we operate exclusively on a referral system. Cases need to be referred to us by organisations that have verified a cancer diagnosis which requires treatment that is not covered by the NHS. We accept referrals from UK hospitals, cancer research institutes or GoFundMe UK.
We are currently only able to donate to individual treatment cases via a GoFundMe campaign set up by an immediate family member, or to a UK medical institution providing the treatment. This ensures that there is a system in place to verify that funds donated go towards the intended medical treatment and the travel required to obtain it. To submit your GoFundMe campaign for consideration, please visit GoFundMe’s submissions portal.
All funding decisions will be taken at the discretion of our board of trustees, in compliance with UK Charity Commission guidance, and in consultation with cancer research and medical experts.
Funding for confirmed individual treatments and the corresponding amounts donated will be considered on a case-by-case basis, usually up to £10,000. Trustees will take into account treatment plan confirmation details, the experimental stage of the treatment sought, the medical evidence for the proposed treatment, match-funding status, the opportunity to support in non-financial means (for example by promoting the campaign to help reach the funding target), as well as the overall sustainability of the foundation’s donations fund.
