Advocacy & Awareness
Representing our children is something that we take seriously. We recognize that during difficult times, families often do not have the energy or resources to create change. Therefore, the Kids with Cancer Society is committed to working with community and medical agencies to highlight the needs and influence positive change for children with cancer and their families.
Ensuring that children with cancer are aware of the support that is available, resources such as email communication, Facebook, and our website are updated regularly.
Sadly of all children diagnosed with cancer in developing countries only 20% have access to treatment. Thousands of children die each year due to lack of treatment. Recognizing that childhood cancer has no geographic boundaries the Kids with Cancer Society directs 1% of its funding to a pediatric oncology center in Bogota, Columbia.
Family Advisory Council
The Family Advisory Council of the Kids with Cancer Society is a group of family members who have been impacted by childhood cancer. Their role is to advocate for the improvement of programs, services, policies, and the overall quality of cancer care provided to children, teens, and their families throughout their lives.
