OPACC is a registered charity in operation since 1995. We offer a unique support system geared specifically to parents of children who have been diagnosed with cancer throughout Ontario. OPACC recognizes that while children with cancer deservedly have access to an impressive support network of healthcare professionals and other resources, parents are often the ‘forgotten patient.’ We advocate on many issues that are of concern for families that have an impact not only today, but also in the future.
A few of OPACC’s initiatives include providing a Province-wide distinct set of in hospital Parent Liaison (currently operating at two hospitals), support group services and financial assistance programs. These ensure families get the help they need as they navigate their childhood cancer journey.
This year our focus includes our 2nd Annual OPACC Hearts of Gold Gala at the Symphony Banquet Hall at 959 Derry Road in Mississauga.
The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. and will be a majestic night of fun, food and celebration which will bring patient families, the community and business leaders together to support this cause!
