Description

Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer (OPACC) was established in 1995 and is comprised of representatives from parent groups, parent contacts, and other family members from across the province. Our members are parents, guardians, survivors, or close relatives of a child/teen diagnosed with childhood cancer. We have been a Registered Charity since 2006. OPACCs overall goal is to be the parent voice for families with children diagnosed with cancer across the Province of Ontario. OPACC’s primary focus in helping these families is by establishing Parent Liaison professionals in the paediatric oncology treatment centres in Ontario. These Parent Liaison professionals are parents who have already undertaken a childhood cancer journey and understand the impact a diagnosis has on the entire family. Throughout September 2015, OPACC is proud to be a partner organization of The Big Book of Care national media campaign for childhood cancer awareness month.

General Info

OPACC is an independent registered charity; while we often partner with other organizations to provide services to our families, our programs are managed separately. OPACC receives no government funding and all funding for the development of our programs, services and special events (which are provided at no cost to our families) comes from the donations of generous organizations, businesses, foundations, and individuals. OPACC does not necessarily support or endorse the opinions posted by outside parties on this page, and encourages you to do your own research and consult with your healthcare team in order to make an informed decision for your family.

Unfortunately, due to much lower than anticipated registrations, C.J.'s Skateboard Park has cancelled the "Kids Being Kids" day this Saturday and we will try again for the date of Saturday, February 7th. We apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause!
