Message from our CEO
In 1987, when survival rates for childhood cancers were a fraction of what they are now, our name was Candlelighters Canada.
Today, with 25 years of hard work behind us, Childhood Cancer Canada is the country's leading Foundation dedicated to funding national research while delivering critical education, community and connectivity programs to children with cancer and their families.
Through our National Network of Care we are able to reach all those who need our help. Our partnership with the C17, the Council of Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists ensures that the national research we fund improves health outcomes and quality of life for children and adolescents.
We are a committed and focused organization that is determined to raise the overall cure rate for all childhood cancers, including those most deadly, and dramatically diminish the lifelong side effects of today's harsh childhood cancer treatments.
We need more childhood cancer champions. If you need help, or are in a position to help, please contact me today.
Childhood Cancer Canada - connecting the nation in a common cause.
