Become a donor of the BSPHO's ‘To Cure and Beyond’ fundraising campaign so that children and young people with cancer can reap the benefits of scientific research.

A little bit can go a long way! Donate now to help give children with cancer a better chance at life.

Paediatric cancer is a rare disease: it makes up less than 1% of all cancer cases. In Belgium, approximately 500 children under 18 are diagnosed with cancer each year.

Problems in Paediatric Cancer

Yellow ribbon
What are the diagnostic procedures?

As all paediatric cancers are rare diseases, investment and research in this domain is often not profitable for pharma companies given the lower number of patients, resulting in fewer innovative and effective treatments. Scientific progress is largely due to academic clinical trials which are not, or only partially, funded by pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, existing treatments are not always reimbursed for children.

To confront this problem, the Belgian Association of Paediatric Haemato-Oncology (BSPHO) is looking for ways to give every child with cancer access to innovative research, better treatments and is fighting for better reimbursements for paediatric cancer treatments.

We are grateful for any type of support we receive to help give children with cancer a better chance at life.
