Chapter 3: THE NEXT CHAPTER

It’s a story no child or family would ever choose.

You are part of an unfolding story. A story where children get cancer. It’s a story no child or family would ever choose.

Fortunately, there is a hero in this story—you.

You play a big part in this story. In fact, we could dedicate a whole chapter to you.

By raising awareness, organizing a fundraiser, or volunteering and giving, you can help organizations of the Big Book of Care carryout their important work. These organizations are making vital programs and services possible for children and families facing childhood cancer—pediatric cancer research at universities and hospitals across Canada; educational support for young people; cancer camps for children across the nation; and post-secondary scholarships for survivors.

You have the power to change the story of childhood cancer. And you can do this in a zillion different ways. Here’s 10 easy ways you can help this September!
