Our Programs

To create victories for Canadian children with cancer through investment in 
national, collaborative, lifesaving research, empowering education and 
community programs.

*In light of COVID-19, we are pausing our Empower Packs and Amazing Adventures programs to protect the extremely vulnerable population we serve. The Survivor Scholarship will be open until May, 29th 2020 and we will continue to run the Benevolent Fund.

We have opened a COVID-19 Emergency Fund to support families whose income has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. More info can be found below. 

We are thinking of you all during these highly unusual times. 

Emergency Fund

The COVID-19 Emergency Fund is a financial program available to families across Canada who have a child in active treatment for cancer and who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Benevolent Fund

The Benevolent Fund supports families with much needed financial assistance to help cover the costs of their child’s funeral. Childhood Cancer Canada will fund up to $1000 in expenses to the family’s funeral service provider for final arrangements and memorial services.

Survivor Scholarship

The Childhood Cancer Canada Scholarship Program is open to young adult cancer survivors. Survivor Scholarships support post-secondary academic aspirations and recognize the personal triumphs of students who have survived childhood cancer. Applications will be available for both the $1500 general scholarship and the $5000 TEVA Scholarship for those pursuing education in the medical, health and pharmaceutical fields.

Empower Packs

Childhood Cancer Canada sends Empower Packs to families in Canada whose child is newly diagnosed with cancer. These Empower Packs provide families with information and inspiration to cope with what comes next. Empower Packs are specialized based on the child’s interest and needs.

Amazing Adventures

Amazing Adventures helps children with cancer feel stronger, empowered, and inspired to battle their illness. Every Amazing Adventure helps create joy and respite to children whose lives are filled with so much uncertainty. These adventures may include tickets to concerts, sporting events, and theatre productions, invitations to local child-focused venues, as well as inclusion in our special events provided by our generous donors.

Words cannot express how grateful I am for the CCC scholarship towards my undergraduate studies in Biomedical science.

I was diagnosed with Wilm's Tumor at the age of 5. I am now 21. The CCC Scholarship has helped me to afford transportation and has also bought the textbooks that I will use to graduate.
