Have Your Say!

                                              

We are asking for contributions from parents and anybody concerned with childhood cancer to give Childhood and Adolescent Cancer a strong focus in the Consultation on the EU Beating Cancer Plan.

As members of CCI-Europe (Childhood Cancer International Europe) Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland, CanCare4living and CanTeen Ireland together with medical professionals, other organisations and individuals are asked to encourage as many responses as possible to ensure that Childhood and Adolescent Cancers will be noticed by EU policy makers to ensure better awareness, access to innovative treatments, research, eradication of inequalities, care for survivors and financial supports. This is an important opportunity to have your voice heard at EU level

If you think you can help, please do the following before 11pm Irish time 7th May 2020.

1. Register on https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/cas/eim/external/register.cgi (confirmation email may take up to 24 hours-so you are encouraged to create an account well in time to allow completion of the questionnaire before the deadline.

2. Access the EU Cancer Public Consultation https://ec.europa.eu/…/i…/12154-Europe-s-Beating-Cancer-Plan

CCI-Europe, SIOPE, and PanCare, (the Organisations representing parents, survivors and the medical professionals working in the field of childhood cancer) have adopted a collaborative approach to the consultation and have developed a template of replies with agreed key messages, which you can use and add to if you wish.

The more completed questionnaires received, the more importance Childhood and Adolescent Cancer will receive in the EU Beating Cancer Plan.

Childhood Cancer Foundation is delighted to introduce the Beads of Courage programme to children in treatment of St Johns Haematology/Oncology Ward.  The programme has been welcomed by kids and parents on the ward.  Caoimhe recently received her initial beads and her mum Lorraine said “It was nice the way we sat around the table in the playroom and we all looked at the beads and talked about Caoimhe’s story. It helped her to express herself”.  Thanks to Lorraine and Caoimhe for sharing photos of Caoimhe’s Beads of Courage with us.
