Each year, approximately 150 children in BC are diagnosed with cancer. Every one of them has their treatment plan developed at BC Children's Hospital. Thanks to the world-leading care provided, BC has the best childhood cancer survival rate in the country—but there is more to be done.
Dedicated researchers in the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program are continuing to uncover innovative treatments that are more personalized, effective and that have the lowest risk of serious complications.
All funds raised from Festival of Trees will help to propel this research forward—moving us closer to a day where every child diagnosed with cancer thrives.
