ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

WE IMPROVE LIVES

The Together for Children with Leukemia Foundation is one of the largest health charity in Hungary dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer children patients.

Established in 2003, we are there to improve the life of children with leukemia and to improve their chances of recovery. We are a charity bringing an integrated cancer care to the children with leukemia in Hungary. Instead of traditional cancer care that stops with surgery and chemotherapy, we bring together the different health care and allied health care disciplines—oncology, nursing, psychology, spirituality and more.

We contribute to the therapeutic work of pediatric hospitals and pediatric oncology clinics to alleviate the suffering of families raising children with leukemia and to research aimed at curing children with leukemia.

HISTORY

WHAT WE DO

The Together for Children with Leukemia Foundation exists for one reason—to eliminate childhood leukemia as a life-threatening disease. Our central focus is on educating, empowering and all to become pro-active in childhood leukemia and, if diagnosed, in surviving cancer.

Our services include nutrition, exercise, and social support. And we provide help now with emergency financial assistance to medicines and medical supplies to families with leukemic children in poverty. In recent years, with the help of our generous supporters, we have collected over 2.4 million dollars to assist with the treatment of children with leukemia. Among other things, by October 2015 we have provided a total of over 281,500 dollars to more than 600 families as regular monthly support under our Family Support Program.

Family support

When childhood leukemia strikes, it impacts the entire family and all areas of their life, especially financially.  We have designed our Family Program to assist with the basic needs of children cancer patients in need.  The demand is huge. Our commitment: no children with leukemia will go through cancer without the basics of daily needs. Accepting a post-cancer body is often very difficult.  But simple sensitive acts of care and kindness can help.  This is the focus of our Family Program. By October 2015 we have provided a total of over 281,500 dollars to more than 600 families as regular monthly support under our Family Support Program.

VISION

While in the 1950’s, only about 10% of children with leukemia survived the illness, today 75-80% of children with cancer recover fully under the right conditions. Our vision is to raise this number to 100%.

MISSION

The mission of the Together for Children with Leukemia Foundation is to help curing children with leukemia and to improve their quality of life and their families’. We are there for all children with blood cancer and we work to ensure and we are dedicated to improve their chances of recovery.

THE PRESENT

Today, more children around the world die of leukemia and other cancers than any other single illness. In Hungary some 1500 to 2000 children with this illness are fighting for their lives today. While in the 1950’s, only about 10% of children with leukemia survived the illness, today 75-80% of these recover fully under the right conditions.

OUR ACHIEVEMENT

In recent years, with the help of our generous supporters, we have collected over 2.4 million dollars to assist with the treatment of children with leukemia. By August 2015, we have provided a total of over 281,500 dollars to more than 600 families as regular monthly support under our Family Support Program.
