Who we are

Momentum is a registered charity established in 2004 which aims to help children (up to the age of 17) and the families of children, undergoing treatment for cancer in Surrey and South West London. Momentum was set up by Bianca Effemey and two parents who had first hand experience of these life-changing events, with the simple goal of trying to help others in similar circumstances.
