Team Verrico

Team Verrico is a small volunteer charity committed to improving the prospects of families with a cancer diagnosis who have children under the age of 18 years. In particular rare and or hard-to-treat cancers, e.g. triple negative breast cancer.

The charity aims to assist people with a terminal diagnosis and their families; fund research into cancer; and to publicise the symptoms and treatment options of certain hard-to-treat cancers with a view to improving detection rates.

It also provides funding to enable people with cancer to access second opinions. The charity supports consultations, specific tests and scans. Team Verrico provides a confidential counselling service to families as well as practical support and living aids for families with children under the age of 18 years who have rare or hard-to-treat cancers.
