In Ontario alone, over 400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and at any point in time over 4,000 children are receiving cancer treatment or follow-up care in this province.

Childhood cancer is the leading disease-related cause of death for our children; 1 child dies of cancer each week. This course examines the differences between childhood and adult cancer, the journey for First Nation, Inuit and Métis children with cancer and the role the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario plays in helping to navigate this journey with a unique whole-life approach to childhood cancer care.
