The Regional non-governmental organization “Children and Parents Against Cancer” is not the first attempt to unite parents of children with cancer. Since the beginning of 90-es, there have been several such organizations in our city. But those organizations provided no complex, city-wide solutions for social support of families that have children with cancer; there have been no solutions on the federal level. There was no power that would be able to go outside the usual thinking, to see the situation not by the eyes of a particular family or a particular child but from other positions – starting with raising awareness on childhood cancer or considering the problems of rehabilitation.
The organization “Children and Parents Against Cancer” was founded in May 1998 and became the only organization in our city that provides complex solutions for treatment, psychological support and rehabilitation of children with cancer.
The members of our organization, having passed through a lot of trials, made an objective – to do everything to return their children to normal life, to enter the magic and carefree land that is called CHILDHOOD.
