International Childhood Cancer Day

3 ways YOU can take action

February 15 is International Childhood Cancer Day and Kids Cancer Care is partnering with children’s cancer organizations from around the world to take action for children affected by cancer.

Please act now and call on governments and international development organizations to recognize the needs of children and adolescents with cancer to ensure better access to care for children everywhere.

Together, we honour the courage of children and young adults affected by cancer and take a stand to change the course of this disease.

  1. RIDE SOMEWHERE MEANINGFUL in the Kids Cancer Care Cycle Challenge. A premier, all-inclusive, three-day cycling tour through the Alberta Foothills. Enjoy scenic routes with other cyclists by day and recover around the campfire at Camp Kindle by night. Save with early bird pricing until February 28.  
  2. PURCHASE A COURAGE BRACELET to show your courage. Designed with love by a bereaved sibling in honour of International Childhood Cancer Day, each bracelet will be customized to your wrist size and with your child’s name or another child’s name. Bracelets are $40 each with proceeds going to Kids Cancer Care. 
  3. LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE TREE OF LIFE for International Childhood Cancer Day. Kids Cancer Care is partnering with Childhood Cancer International and Childhood Cancer Care in the 2024 Tree of Life and we hope you’ll join us too. Visit the digital Tree of Life and create a colourful handprint with a message of hope for children affected by cancer from around the world.

Thank you for taking action for children affected by cancer. Together, we can change the course of childhood cancer.
