I care about a child with cancer & want information & support

A whole community feels the impact when a child is diagnosed with cancer…

…grandparents, aunts and uncles, siblings, family friends, neighbours and teachers. A child’s cancer diagnosis is a terrible shock, but Redkite is here for you too.
