Childhood Cancer Day at Tygerberg

Childhood cancer can be cured if diagnosed early enough, and if there is adequate access to the required physical facilities and equipment to ensure optimal healthcare.

This is a message shared recently by the Tygerberg Hospital Children’s Trust and Tygerberg Hospital, who in partnership with the Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa (Choc), will be honouring International Childhood Cancer Day on Friday morning by hosting a special event at the hospital.

“Non-government organisations partnerships are important to assist with supporting families as childhood cancer is a major burden to families, especially in the context of poverty and unemployment in South Africa,” says Mariana Kruger, executive head of paediatrics and child health, and paediatric oncologist at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital.

Choc provides essential supportive services to such families by ensuring that paediatric oncology units have lodger facilities.

Furthermore, Choc also assists with transport funding and food parcels for families in need.

They are also actively involved in childhood awareness programmes for parents and the public at large, as well as training of healthcare workers.

The Tygerberg Hospital Children’s Trust works to support the paediatric oncology unit in Tygerberg Hospital to obtain the essential equipment needed for these children.
