About POGO

The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) champions childhood cancer care. When a child is battling cancer, we ensure that the child has lifelong access to the best care for the best possible outcomes.

We provide that child’s family with financial support to help ease the burden. We commit to their ongoing care, knowing that childhood cancer survivors endure medical challenges into adulthood. We advance cancer care for all children with cancer through our pioneering database and research. POGO leads a unique and impactful pediatric cancer network that is a model for Canada and the world.
