Tapfuma Makina spoke to Lynette Mother (Regional Manager for CHOC) on #HeartBreakfast this morning.The CHOC Foundation celebrates their 39th anniversary!
Childhood Cancer is a life changing , traumatic experience. We exist to serve and support the children, parents, families and communities through their cancer journey to keep more than hope alive.
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation was established in 1979 by parents of children with cancer. Having experienced the immense emotional and financial toll that cancer takes they recognised there is more than one victim in the family of a child with cancer, and they bound together to support each other, children with cancer and their loved ones. Their aim was to ease the burden on parents and families facing the same journey by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.
CHOC is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer, life-threatening blood disorders and their families. We have a national office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, one branch, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies on corporate sponsors and donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.If you would like to help CHOC, visit their website www.choc.org.za
