Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa (CHOC)

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation is a country wide voluntary organisation. It brings together the parents of children who suffer from all varieties of cancer or life threatening blood disorders.

The name CHOC (an abbreviation of “Childrens Haematology Oncology Clinics”) was used by the first local parent group, established in 1979.

In 2000 a new national organisation was formed, linking parent groups in all parts of the country.

The goal of this dedicated group is to improve the welfare and quality of care for children with cancer.

The organisation provides direct practical help to children with cancer, from diagnosis onwards, recognising the inevitable disruption to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment.

Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and their families, and also those involved in the treatment of these most serious illnesses.

There are regional divisions of the Foundation, based in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Western Cape, Free State, and KwaZulu-Natal.
