More than eight in 10 children with cancer now survive, compared to just three in 10 in the late 1960s, according to research.
The latest figures from Cancer Research have shown the number of children surviving cancer for five years or more has risen from 79% to 82% in the last decade.
The increase in survival is largely due to tackling the disease by combining a number of different chemotherapy drugs, the charity said.
Survival has improved for all children's cancers, but liver and bone tumours appear to have made particularly good progress in recent years, its figures showed.
Within the last decade five-year survival for liver tumours has increased from 67% to 82% and for bone tumours from 61% to 68%.
The research included although more and more children are surviving their cancer due to research, there is still some way to go with certain forms of the disease such as neuroblastoma (67% chance of a five year survival) and medulloblastoma (64% chance of a five year survival).
