Your Impact

Every month across the island of Ireland, another 40 families are told that their child has cancer.

 

It is frightening, challenging, and isolating and can devastate families emotionally, physically, and financially.

 

At Cancer Fund for Children, we understand the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and its treatment have on the whole family, and that beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt.

 

Our aim is to empower, connect and strengthen families, so they feel equipped to deal with whatever cancer throws at them, but this support simply would not be possible without amazing people like you by our side.

 

Working together and stepping out with Team Daisy, you can help us ensure we can be there for children and young people impacted by cancer, and their families, with the right support at the right time.

 

Together, we can ensure no child faces cancer alone.
