The Cause

How your fundraising can make a difference

When a regional child receives a cancer diagnoses, the child and their family must travel to a major city for long-term treatment at a moment’s notice.

The parents often need to leave their jobs, take their children out of school, and figure out how to pay for long-term accommodation in a new city while also covering the cost of their rent or mortgage and living expenses. This added stress is on top of what is already the most emotionally difficult time in their lives.

Providing a home away from home

Childhood Cancer Support

At Childhood Cancer Support, we provide families with free short-term and long-term accommodation, fully equipped with everything they need as well as food, transport and counseling services. We take away the added stress and burden so that families can focus on their child.

We bring a community of families together who are going through the same journey. This emotional support, and our social events, helps families get through this difficult time.

Talk Like A Pirate Day is our national major fundraiser and all funds raised will go towards building a new accommodation village close to the hospital to help support more families.
