Raise money for POGO

Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) works to ensure that everyone affected by childhood cancer has access to the best care and support. We partner to achieve an excellent childhood cancer care system for children, youth, their families, survivors and healthcare teams in Ontario and beyond. POGO champions childhood cancer care, and as the collective voice of this community, is the official advisor to Ontario’s Ministry of Health (the Ministry) on children’s cancer control and treatment. POGO is a non-profit organization with charitable status, here for kids with cancer, for now, for life.

In 1983, a group of passionate and visionary pediatric oncologists founded POGO and today, our trusted programs and services have been adopted or modelled nationally and internationally across various areas of care.

POGO ensures that everyone affected by childhood cancer has access to the best possible care and support—from a child’s diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship. 

Did you know? 

  • There are over 4,000 families in Ontario with a child in cancer treatment or follow-up care each year.
  • There are approximately 500 children and youth diagnosed with cancer in a pediatric cancer program in Ontario each year. 
  • Nearly 20,000 children and youth in Ontario are survivors* of childhood cancer.
  • More than 84% of children diagnosed with cancer in Ontario will survive. 
  • Cancer remains the most common cause of disease-related deaths among children in Ontario over the age of 1 year. 

The funds raised will provide financial assistance to families so they can pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment, support survivors with customized school and work counselling when their disease or its treatment has left them with learning challenges, and fund promising research that examines the impact of childhood cancer and its treatment.
