The cause of childhood cancer is still largely unknown. The difference between childhood and adult cancer, is that childhood cancer is not lifestyle-related, and that the treatment must take into account the child’s growing body.
Despite success in research the need for clinical research and development of care and it’s side-effects is still great. Research in this area would not be financed if the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund did not exist, because it affects relatively few children. For the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund it is also important to ensure that research is carried out in the long-term.
With the help of your gift we will get closer to our vision of a world free of childhood cancer.

Philanthropy and major gifts
With your gifts we can do the following
When a child gets ill with cancer, their healthy siblings are also affected. There is a sibling supporter at each regional childhood cancer centre and at the childhood palliative care unit Lilla Erstagården. Their most important role is to see the siblings.
For SEK 50,000 the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund can finance one of them and the activities for a month.
SEK 200,000 is enough to give families affected by childhood cancer the opportunity to use a dedicated phoneline around the clock for a year to received psychological help by qualified staff.
For SEK 500,000 the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund can support a new research project for a year, which will contribute to new treatment methods so that more children survive cancer.
For SEK 1 million the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund can finance an established researcher that is undertaking cutting edge research for a year.
For SEK 3 million the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund can finance a researcher during a whole projects. From beginning to end, this is normally three years. One such project can really take childhood cancer to the next level.
