Cancer is rarely over when the treatments stop. Children who survive cancer can face complex, long-term side effects that can impact their ability to learn and succeed academically.
Our Education Support program is here to help children with cancer-related learning issues get a solid foundation in their primary and secondary school years through a range of programs:
- One-to-one tutoring in the child's home or online;
- Post-secondary preparation for teens;
- Cancer in the Classroom presentations designed to foster greater empathy and understanding for children battling cancer and its after effects; and
- A webinar series, held twice a year, to help parents understand their child's learning after cancer and how best to support the child.
Our Education Support Program is presented in memory of Steven Fowler who loved school and loved learning.
