Great ways to give back
as the end of the year approaches...

Struggling to find a gift for that person who has everything? Why not honour them with a gift that gives back - and makes a tremendous difference to families and children living with child-hood cancer! Our gift catalogue has ideas ranging from hospital parking passes to bursaries for our survivors - all of which can have a real impact this holiday season!
Keep that gift giving spirit alive year-round by becoming a monthly donor!

Through numerous small, monthly donations, Childcan Champions have a big effect on the lives of our Childcan children and families. It's a convenient, affordable way to make a real difference!
December 3 is Giving Tuesday, a day to give back
to the causes that are most important to you.
We're hoping that Childcan is one of them!

This year, our campaign will focus on providing accommodations for families who are travelling long distances to get to appointments. Because of the demand, rooms before an early morning appointment are no longer available. We want to ensure our families aren’t experiencing the additional stress of long early morning drives to get to a 7 am appointment, particularly in the winter weather. We've partnered with a couple of wonderful providers to offer discounted rooms, but these still come at a significant cost to a family that is already coping with the expenses associated with a diagnosis of childhood cancer. Please help us to offset hotel costs for families dealing with the most difficult journey of their lives – the journey through their child’s cancer.
