Door Knocking Scam
We have received a few reports from people who have had someone show up at their door claiming to be from Child Cancer Foundation and asking for a donation. Please be aware that this is likely to be a scam – we do not have any representatives of Child Cancer Foundation undertaking door-to-door collections, nor have we endorsed any third parties to do so on our behalf.
If you are suspicious of someone claiming to be collecting money for Child Cancer Foundation or fundraising on our behalf, don’t feel pressured to make a quick decision. Please feel free to call us on 0800 424 453 so one of our team can help you identify if they are legitimate or not.

At the time, Lucca’s parents were told that her cancer was unlikely to respond to traditional chemotherapy and radiation. However, thanks to a ground-breaking research study jointly funded by Child Cancer Foundation, the Precision Paediatric Cancer Project, Lucca got a second chance at life. Find out more.

Great news for whānau
Starship open to family support coordinators
We are thrilled that our Family Support team is now able to access Starship to visit families in hospital. This is fantastic news and will strengthen our ability to build relationships and support families on treatment. CHOC also remains open to our staff.
Family support coordinators must return a negative RAT before entering the ward, and anyone who is a household contact will not be allowed access.
The health and safety of the children and families we support is our biggest priority, so staff members will continue taking a cautious approach in regards to their own health to minimise any risk.
