How Talk Like a Pirate Day makes a difference

Childhood Cancer Support was formed in 1975 when a group of desperate parents, with children being treated for leukaemia and cancer, met to discuss ways of helping each other and their children.

Today, Childhood Cancer Support provides emotional and practical support to regional families through family-styled accommodation, transport services, counselling and mental health support and a range of vital support services. The charity is committed to making life easier for families impacted by childhood cancer.

To help families impacted by childhood cancer.

To create a positive community in the lives of families that have been impacted by childhood cancer.
