Childhood Cancer Foundation

Childhood Cancer Foundation is a national, parent led, voluntary organisation.

We receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of public donations and fundraising events to fund our work.


Our goal is to:


- Raise awareness among the Irish public about issues surrounding childhood cancer


- Help fund supports for parents and children around the country who are affected by this disease


- Advocate for improved services for children and families affected by childhood cancer

Knowing the signs of childhood cancer could save a life

Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland is asking families and the medical community to be aware of the early signs of childhood cancer during Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Knowing the signs can save live.

Around 200 children (aged 0-16 years) are diagnosed with cancer in Ireland each year. A diagnosis of childhood cancer has a devastating impact on the entire family, stopping life in its tracks. Early diagnosis has a significant impact on the treatment options and prognosis for children.
