More about CHOC

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation is the only organisation in South Africa that provides support to children with cancer and life threatening blood disorders and their families. Our holistic care support includes emotional support in the hospital wards, from diagnosis onwards, and practical support ranging from accommodation, transport, care bags and basic nutritional support. Without this support, many children – particularly from low-income families living far from treatment centres, would not be able to access, or adhere to the necessary but arduous treatment cycle, which can last over three years. Many CHOC beneficiaries come from impoverished backgrounds; there is often a need for basic necessities and in some cases nutritional support. CHOC provides care bags to all newly diagnosed child as well as food, clothing, recreational activities and transport to and from the hospital. If required, CHOC also provides bereavement support and assists with funeral costs. CHOC also advocates on behalf of those whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer through awareness campaigns and lobbying
