Our organization

The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation is the coordinating body and national umbrella association for the country’s six regional childhood cancer associations.

The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation works to fight childhood cancer and ensures that affected children, youth and their families receive the care and the support they need. The Foundation does this by four important areas of operation:

RESEARCH AND TRAINING

The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation is the single largest financier of childhood cancer research in Sweden. All the great progress in the treatment of paediatric cancer is due to research.

INFORMATION

Through measures such as the Childhood Cancer Report, PR and opinion-shaping, we spread awareness of childhood cancers and the situations of the children and their families, in order to make their lives easier.

ADVICE AND SUPPORT

The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation is constantly working to improve support for children with cancer and their families. For example, the Foundation funds the peer support programme and consulting nurses at the nation’s six paediatric oncology centres.

FUNDRAISING

One of the most important tasks of the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation is to support research, and this requires extensive resources. That’s why the foundation works continually to step up its efforts and find new paths into people’s hearts.
