A brief history about the childhood cancer support Inc
There came a time when families of children who were suffering from cancer and leukaemia came to a consensus that their children really needed to be treated very well. This was with regards to the health conditions that their children were in and the inadequate treatments given to them at that time. Consequently, it led to the formation of a very noble association by name Childhood Cancer Support Inc in the year 1975. The main motive of this association was to advocate for the provision of better healthcare services and to also provide professionally trained people who could help these children in a more efficient way. However, with the passage of time, these two objectives have grown to include the rendering of monetary and psychological assistance to those families that have children suffering from leukaemia and cancer. In addition, there is also the making of very unique accommodative facilities for those families that are required to stay over in order for their children to receive adequate treatment for their health condition.
The aim of the association
It is the aim of the association to help in the provision of all that a child suffering from cancer may need in the form of treatment and also to see to it that his or her family and the entire community are catered for in a more effective way.
What is the value of the childhood cancer support Inc?
The association values the provision of total unqualified support services to the children, their parents and the communities that they live in without considering what might happen to the child in the long run. The association therefore strives to always make sure that these children and their parents have all that they need during their treatment sessions throughout the entire battle with cancer regardless of whether they will survive or not.
What the childhood cancer support Inc really does
The association has been seeing to the proper rendering of a number of high quality services to children with cancer and their parents and also to the various communities where they reside. Some of these services are further elaborated below;

These accommodation facilities are all situated at the Royal Children’s Brisbane Hospital and they number up to a total of four large housing units. The housing facilities all come with very special features that also help to release the emotional and financial stress that such families pass through during times like that.
