Undergoing chemo for my breast cancer I came to realize how expensive treatment can become and started thinking how difficult it must be for anyone going through the emotional stress of cancer to also have to worry about the financial side . That is why I ask you to join me in supporting CHOC - "Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and families , and those involved in the treatment. The goal of this dedicated group is to improve the welfare and quality of care for children with cancer. "

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.
Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
