Mission & Goals:

POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario) helps children with cancer. We do this by making sure that every child with cancer in Ontario can get the best possible care – no matter where they live. POGO Satellite Clinics in Peel Region, Simcoe County, Northern Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area help bring care closer to home for thousands of families.

POGO is the official advisor to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care on children’s cancer. This relationship has led to new services and important innovations in the children’s cancer care delivery system.

How your contribution helps:

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it can be very hard on the family financially. Your contribution will help families pay for food when their child is being treated in the hospital, pay for hotels and other accommodation when they need to travel far for treatment, and it even helps to pay for babysitting for brothers and sisters that are left at home when the rest of the family is at the hospital. These out-of-pocket costs associated with treatment can consume up to 1/3 of an average family’s after tax income. In many cases, one parent must give up work in order to care for the sick child and the situation is made even more difficult. Your donation makes a big difference!
