The Cause

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.  Learn more about POGO.

As new treatments and technologies continue to increase the rate of survival for childhood cancer, care for these children, their families and survivors is becoming more and more complex. That’s why POGO is there for them from the start, and for as long as they need us, providing care, support, even financial help. Whatever it takes to make a difference, and change a life.

Parents shouldn’t have to worry about money when their child is battling cancer.
POGO’s Financial Assistance Program reimburses families for the out-of-pocket expenses associated with their child’s cancer treatment.
