We share information and experience in order to improve access to the best possible treatment and care for children with cancer everywhere in the world. Complete the form to learn more.

Establishing and Strengthening Parent Groups

These articles are relevant to the organization and running of parent groups.  Some of them address issues faced by many parent organizations, while others are comments on the experiences of various groups.

It is hoped that this body of articles will be added to share and enhance  the experiences and expertise of parent groups around the world.
