Childhood Cancer Association
The Childhood Cancer Association is one of Australia’s key childhood cancer support organisations.
Supporting more than 400 families, the Childhood Cancer Association provides ongoing and practical hands on support for children with cancer, and their families. Families should not feel alone at this time.
More than 30 non-medical support services are provided free of charge to families in need. This includes educational support, accommodation for country families and counselling provided by two psychologists which is available to the whole family.
Established in South Australia in 1982, the Childhood Cancer Association does not receive any ongoing government funding and relies on the community to help raise $1 million every year to meet the growing demand for its services.
The Association’s long term goal is to be able to provide vital support to every child with cancer, and their family, in Australia.
