For the project “Live Life to the Full,” which provides external prostheses to children who have had an amputation as a result of bone cancer, and for related research and navigational surgery.

SCAT (Skeletal Cancer Action Trust) was established in 1994 at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH). The RNOH and the University College London Hospitals together form the London Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma Service, which is recognized on national and international levels as a center of excellence for the diagnosis and management of primary bone and soft tissue cancers. The SCAT charity has evolved within the RNOH for the care and treatment of children and adults with skeletal cancer. The charity is dedicated to advancing bone cancer research, to providing the best possible care and support at each stage of treatment, and to improving the dignity and quality of life of patients.  The charity also assists the friends and family of bone cancer patients.  Research plays a key role in the diagnosis, treatment and cure of this cancer.
