Cancer Fund for Children is the leading charity for children and young people living with cancer in Northern Ireland. We support all children aged 0-24 affected by cancer so we can help them and their families cope with the impact cancer has on their lives.
Every week in Northern Ireland, three families will hear the devastating news that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Fund for Children understands how crushing this diagnosis can be, and that outside of medical treatment, there is a family life which needs to be rebuilt.
Cancer Fund for Children Specialists provide emotional, financial and practical support to the whole family, including brothers or sisters who are often left isolated, frightened and anxious. Our therapeutic short break centre, Daisy Lodge provides a much needed relaxing break for the whole family, giving them time to spend together, relax and recharge their batteries ready for whatever will come next on their cancer journey.
