We are dedicated to helping children with rare cancers by funding research into new treatment.


About Toby

The Dear Toby Trust was established in 2017, in memory of Toby Hambrook-Skinner who passed away at Great Ormond Street Hospital after an epic battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. He was just seven months old. Toby was diagnosed at eight weeks and began an aggressive treatment plan. Toby’s family and friends have set up this charity to find new ways to treat rare cancers and reduce the suffering of children enduring cancer treatment. Together we have raised more than £120,000 so far.

We want to find a kinder way

We believe there is a way to beat childhood cancer using less aggressive methods. The medical professionals need money to do this, money they don’t have.

Despite everything he faced Toby was a happy boy who made the most of every day and made those around him happier for knowing him. Now he is gone his legacy lives on – a more hopeful future for children with cancer.
