Zoe4life has 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.
The Beads of courage project is now implemented for children currently in treatment at HUG and CHUV. This program helps the child understand his treatment plan and feel proud of himself, thus improving his self-esteem. The program is put in place by the Ligue vaudoise contre le cancer and Zoe4life funds the beads.
Zoe4life actively funds research and advocates for better access to new innovative treatments. Thanks to the NGO’s funding partnership of the Swiss Pediatric Oncology Group, three new treatment protocols have opened which will help children who, like Zoé, would otherwise run out of treatment options in Switzerland. Pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death from disease in children.
