Children’s Cancer Foundation
Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is a non-profit organisation with a mission to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families and children impacted by cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being.
Founded in 1992, CCF provides children with cancer and their families the much needed support in their battle against the life threatening illness. Over the years, CCF has helped more than 3000 children and their families at different stages of the illness and recovery.

Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Selected YFC teams will be invited to CCF’s main office for an introductory session to CCF and childhood cancer. The session includes information about CCF’s programmes and services, childhood cancer statistics and screening of video(s) featuring childhood cancer survivors. The sharing will allow the YFC teams to gain better insights about the childhood cancer cause, and they will then be our ambassadors in increasing childhood cancer awareness in the community.
