ICCD – International Childhood Cancer Day 2016

The 15th of February 2016 is International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD).

This day was started as a global collaborative campaign to raise awareness about childhood cancer and to express support for children with cancer, survivors and their families.

In developed countries, childhood cancer has become largely curable with the overall survival rate reaching between 70% and 80% whilst in South Africa the rate is closer to 50%. CHOC aims to ensure that more children in South Africa are cured and that the survival rate goes up.

By participating in ICCD initiatives, you will be contributing to the well-being of children with cancer in South Africa as well as their families.

Thank you for helping us keep more than hope alive.
