Child Cancer Foundation

Cancer Network Group Service


8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.


Every week in New Zealand, three families are told the heartbreaking news that their child has cancer. None of them ever thought it would happen to their child.

Cancer doesn’t care about these children or their families. Child Cancer Foundation does.

Child Cancer Foundation is a New Zealand charity that provides support to children and families on their cancer journey.

We support them every step of the way, helping them overcome challenges and maintain control of their lives.

We focus on the whānau, not the cancer. No two families’ experiences are the same, and neither is the nature of the support they need.

One thing is always the same: we support every family so they can concentrate on the most important thing of all, loving and caring for their child.

We don't receive any government funding, so these families rely on the generosity of everyday Kiwis to receive the vital support they need.
