Childhood Cancer Association

The Childhood Cancer Association was formed in 1982 by a group of parents of children with cancer.

Responding to the need that they, themselves, had identified, this dedicated group established the grounds for what is, today, a unique network of peer support. Their commitment was to create perpetual funding and develop services for families in circumstances of a child diagnosed with cancer. Their charter was to provide emotional, practical and financial support to every family and extended family member.
