Dear friends and colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland has been joined by CanCare4Living under the new name Childhood Cancer Ireland. Together, the two organisations will continue to represent the voice of children, adolescents and young adults with cancer, survivors and their families as the national parent and survivor-led childhood cancer charity. 

Our vision is a future in which the voice of the lived experience of young people with cancer, survivors and their families is heard and represented at all levels of decision making. 

We have worked closely together for almost 10 years and Childhood Cancer Ireland will continue to campaign for better supports and services for families and survivors, as well as better treatments and outcomes for children and young people, ensuring that their views and experiences are embedded in policy and practice. Bringing our two charities together creates a unified and even stronger voice for everyone affected by childhood cancer and we are pleased that Childhood Cancer Ireland will reflect the life-long impact of childhood cancer - from diagnosis to treatment and into survivorship and adulthood. We will also work hard to respect and honour the memory of all children and young people whose lives have been tragically lost to cancer. 

 

We will continue to run the projects currently being funded by Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland and CanCare4Living and to look for other areas where we can support families and survivors. Childhood Cancer Ireland is driven by a committed board  of directors, the majority of whom have experience of childhood cancer in their families or, are survivors. As a result, the charity has a unique insight into what is required to support families effectively.  We would like to thank you for your support to date and we look forward to continuing our work together under our new name.  

 

Best regards,
