advising and supporting survivors
Cancer often accompanies long-term survivors and their parents for the rest of their lives due to the late effects. Many survivors are confronted with further challenges even after successful treatment. These can have far-reaching effects on the lives of those affected, who often feel left alone with their worries and fears. To remedy this situation, Childhood Cancer Switzerland offers information and networking services for survivors and parents of survivors.
The Survivors’ Centre plans and organises meetings and events specially for survivors.
We offer professionally supervised exchange and networking opportunities for parents of survivors.
Childhood cancer conference
Our conferences serve both the transfer of valuable professional information and networking.
“Listening to each other and giving encouragement – spending the weekend with people who share our fate and being supported professionally meant such a lot to me!”
Elisabeth S., mother of a survivor
