How?

 

  • we provide direct support for families with a child in treatment. Over one hundred families are supported through this program every year.
  • we fund the beads for the Kanji, Beads of courage program put in place by the Ligue vaudoise contre le cancer. This program helps the child understand his treatment plan and feel proud of himself, thus improving his self-esteem.
  • ZOE4LIFE is actively engaged in supporting research for childhood cancer . We have donated over 580’000.chf to various research projects in Switzerland to date. Our goal is to support the opening of new treatment protocols for kids in Switzerland who otherwise would have little hope for a cure.
  • we continue our awareness campaign about childhood cancer . Geneva’s Jet d’eau will be illuminated in gold to symbolically mark the month of childhood cancer in September of each year.
  • we have funded a sports therapy program for kids with cancer, to help them overcome the treatment-related side effects and regain some self esteem
  • we have put in place an active toy cart for kids who spend time in isolation units after stem cell transplants in Geneva
  • we fund fertility saving treatments for children at risk of infertility due to treatment
  • other projects are underway!
