Read first-hand experiences from families affected by childhood cancer.

After hearing the words ‘your child has cancer’, it’s normal to feel lost. You may have many questions, but don’t know where to turn.

Reading real, childhood cancer stories can help you make sense of your situation and remind you that you’re not alone. From early symptoms and diagnosis to getting life back on track, we follow and support many families on their journeys.

You can use the filter to navigate through the cancer stories. E.g select Acute Myeloid Leukaemia to find stories on how families got to know their child had leukaemia.

Have you or a family member been affected by childhood cancer?

Sharing your personal story can help families living through a similar experience, and inspire others to raise awareness for childhood cancer.
