Covid-19 Protection Framework – update for whānau

With all of New Zealand moving to the COVID-19 Protection Framework on Thursday 2 December, we have consulted with our health professional colleagues in terms of how our Family Support team will operate. Their advice is that we continue supporting whānau remotely in Auckland while at the Red level to protect the health and safety of tamariki with cancer and their families.

Although we cannot undertake any home or face-to-face visits in Auckland while we are at Red, our Family Support team is still able to support you and your whānau remotely. Face-to-face and hospital visits can take place in regions that are at Orange and Green provided the appropriate health and safety guidelines are followed.

How we help

We provide families with personalised support at every stage of their experience with childhood cancer. Hear about it first hand through these powerful stories.

Help us make a lasting difference

Support ground-breaking childhood cancer research.

Lucca Holecliffe was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer in 2016. 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.

With your help, Child Cancer Foundation can fund more research to support the ongoing improvement of cancer treatment available to Kiwi children like Lucca.
