Every week in Northern Ireland another three children, teenagers and young adults (0-24) are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Fund for Children understands the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and treatment can have on the whole family and that beyond essential medical care there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt.
From the point of diagnosis our team of Cancer Support Specialists are here to help, guide and support families at home, in their community, and at our therapeutic short break and residential centre in Newcastle, Co. Down. Our support is focused not just on the young person, but on the whole family. Our aim is to empower, connect and strengthen them, so they feel equipped to deal with whatever the future may hold.
Cancer Fund for Children is also here to help bereaved families cope with the emotional pain of losing a child to cancer as well as supporting children and young people whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer.
