The Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund is the single largest financier of research into childhood cancer in Sweden. Funding research is one of our most important missions. To ensure the best possible care for each child, it is also important to us to actively support and finance the development of new cancer therapies and to ensure that health care staff can get continuing training in paediatric oncology.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is affected, and they all need support in many ways. The Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund works at the national level developing important advice and support measures for children with cancer and their families, to ensure that they receive rehabilitation and necessary recreation. In addition, we work actively to develop and spread information about childhood cancer and build public opinion on cancers in children and teens.
