CARE for kids with cancer with Rainbows and Smiles

Personal message

Not many people know that kids get cancer too, and that most childhood cancers are very, very curable. If you live in America and your child gets cancer, they have an 80% chance of surviving. In South Africa, it’s about 50/50. Kids are dying because cancers in children are often not caught early enough, and when they finally reach specialist centres for treatment, it’s often too late.

You can help change this, by contributing to childhood cancer research to save the lives of kids with cancer. CARE (Cancer Awareness Research and Education) is the only organisation that is dedicated exclusively to supporting research for kids with cancer. We raise awareness and we conduct studies to find out how to reach more children and save more lives.

Dr Jennifer Geel, paediatric oncologist, is leading a team of doctors and friends who are riding to raise as much money as possible for cancer research. Show you CARE and donate today!

Wits Foundation Logo

The Wits Paediatric Fund supports the paediatric and child health departments at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital and Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital. These are the three major teaching units that help train doctors to look after sick children. 

This includes children with cancer, heart problems and kidney conditions. We support the intensive care units that look after premature babies.

Our motto: The size of your pocket should not determine the quality of the health care that you receive!
