chocCHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation is a country wide voluntary organisation. It brings together the parents of children who suffer from all varieties of cancer or life threatening blood disorders - and is dedicated to improving the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer.

Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and their families, and also those involved in the treatment of these most serious illnesses.

The organisation which is not government funded provides direct practical help to children with cancer, from diagnosis onwards, recognising the inevitable disruption to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment.

The name CHOC (an abbreviation of "Childrens Haematology Oncology Clinics") was used by the first local parent group, established in 1979. In 2000 a new national organisation was formed, linking parent groups in all parts of the country.

Funds raised directly benefit the affected children and their families, and also those involved in the treatment of cancer and related illnesses.
