In order to help as many children as possible and to meet the needs and demands of many of the Canadian clubs, the Canadian Children’s Optimist Foundation is pleased to announce that the Childhood Cancer Campaign will be broadened. The purpose of the new enhanced program is to reach out to the youth (and their families) in the community who are experiencing health and wellness challenges to assist them with financial support as they respond to the challenges. Some of those challenges include not only Childhood Cancer, but also Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Heart Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Psychological Disorders, ADHD, Autism and Learning Disabilities.

To date, the moratorium is still in place. We will announce the lifting on our website as soon as it occurs.
