“As a mother of two young children, I can’t imagine what the parents and families of children with cancer must face, especially developing countries, where there are more limited resources.  I feel compelled to help”.

“I am excited to work with an organization that has so much potential to help Children with Cancer worldwide.  Because of our unmatched network of committed paediatric oncologists worldwide, we can have such significant impact with relatively little financial investment”.
