Childhood Cancer of Cancer was started in 1987. The mission of the organization is to create victories for Canadian children with cancer through investment in national, collaborative, lifesaving research, empowering education, and community programs. Childhood Cancer of Canada provides scholarship and recognition to young survivors of childhood cancer who wish to pursue post-secondary education. They also provide an Emergency Fund to patients and families in Canada who are a young adult or have a child with cancer and who need some financial assistance. In the unfortunate event that the love one passes away, Childhood Cancer Canada may provide a benevolent fund to support families with funeral costs.
