Childhood Cancer Association – The Childhood Cancer Association is South Australia’s key childhood cancer support organisation, and provides ongoing and practical hands on support for children living with cancer, and their families.
Support is tailored to meet the needs of every individual family. Key services and support include: professional counselling, daily hospital visits, sibling support, free accommodation for country/interstate families, respite accommodation for all families, financial assistance, educational assistance and bereavement support.
The Childhood Cancer Association was formed in 1982 by a group of parents of children with cancer.
Responding to the needs they had identified themselves, this committed group, with the consultation of Paediatric Oncologist Dr Michael Rice, established the grounds for what is today South Australia’s key childhood cancer support organisation.
