Did you know?
- On average 75 children will be diagnosed with cancer at CHEO each year. In some years, that number has been as high as 95. At any given time, CHEO is treating approximately 500 patients in various stages of their treatment plan.
- CHEO’s dedicated services for cancer patients include a team focused on emotional and mental health. The Hematology/Oncology Psychosocial Team provides approximately 300 families per year with services that include counselling, social work, support during hospitalization and outreach to schools.
- It costs more to purchase equipment for kids than adults. CHEO’s patients range greatly in size and age and medical staff must have equipment available to fit every situation. The difference between a newborn baby and a teenager means that CHEO must have multiple sizes of everything from blood pressure cuffs to heart rate monitors to beds.
- CHEO researchers published more than 535 discoveries last year. That is more than one discovery EVERY DAY!
Where your donations go?
Donations help improve the lives of children and youth fighting childhood cancer at CHEO. Whether it is ensuring children receive chemotherapy, surgery, a simple test or enrollment in one of the hundreds of research studies, your support helps fund oncology care at CHEO.
They support scientists at CHEO and the CHEO Research Institute who lead world class experiments to help fight and cure cancer using innovative virus therapies.
They help ensure CHEO patients have access to the latest cutting-edge technology, modernizing treatment protocols and delivering better results often with less stress.
They expand CHEO’s family centered focus by adding pediatric massage and therapeutic touch to the list of oncology services available to calm, sooth and nurture children going through aggressive treatment.
They help provide mental health support for patients and families. CHEO’s dedicated services for cancer patients include a team focused on emotional and mental health. This team would not exist without donor support and plays an important role in helping children and youth face the harsh realities of dealing with cancer.
They fund the Family Assistance Program which enables CHEO’s Social Work team to direct financial aid to families whose lives have been turned upside down by childhood cancer.
