we have implemented a subsidy program for families with a child in treatment , particularly for expenses not covered by insurance. Over one hundred families are supported through this program every year.
a new project, Beads of courage, is now implemented for children currently in treatment. 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 430’000.chf to various research projects in Switzerland to date.
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. The Calendar of Heroes, with pictures of our super hero kids, sells out every 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 a 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
