À propos de cet organisme

OPACC is a registered charity in operation since 1995 that supports families of children with cancer throughout Ontario. We accomplish this via in-hospital support through our signature Parent Liaison program (the only one of its kind in Ontario) and our hospital parking reimbursement program; by establishing a network of community-based childhood cancer parent support groups throughout the Province so that parents continue to be supported when they return home; by training new parent group facilitators; and by advocating on issues of importance to childhood cancer families. All funding for the development of our programs, services and special events (which are provided at no cost to our families) comes from the donations of generous organizations, businesses, foundations, and individuals.
