For Families

Resources and links for families facing the challenges of childhood cancer.

With you every step of the way

Kids Cancer Care offers wrap-around services for the whole family at each stage of the cancer journey, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Whether it’s camp, therapeutic exercise, tutoring, child life, or counselling services, our programs are designed to address the complex treatment-related side effects of childhood cancer. Thanks to the generous support of our community, we are able to offer our year-round programs and services at no cost to families.  

Programs and services for the whole family

We help children and families through a range of educational, therapeutic and recreational programs and services

Camp and Outreach

Our year-round Camp and Outreach programs are designed to help kids deal with the physical, social and psychological effects of childhood cancer. Patients, survivors, and siblings are all welcome!

Education Support

Our Education Support and Scholarship programs help children with cancer-related learning issues develop confidence at school while gaining an understanding of their own learning needs and how to advocate for themselves. When they’re ready, we offer post-secondary scholarships to an educational institute of their choice.

Hospital Support

Our Hospital Support program helps ensure children with cancer can access the best care right here in Alberta, which means fewer interruptions for the family and being close to their support network when they need it most.
