About the Child Cancer Foundation 

Every week in Aotearoa, three families are told the heartbreaking news that their child has cancer. Dedicated to supporting them is the Child Cancer Foundation who provides one-on-one support in the specific areas they need.  

Currently, the Foundation cares for around 1,400 families throughout their journey with childhood cancer. However, they need to raise $6 million each year to continue providing this vital support and rely on the generosity of everyday Kiwis.  

Wig Wednesday

The treatment these children undergo often means they need to brave the world with no hair.

You can show your support by joining us for Wig Wednesday this September to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation.  

Your donations will ensure more kids and whānau impacted by childhood cancer are provided with essential support every step of the way.  

You can also raise awareness by wearing a wig, rocking a funky hairdo, or even shaving your head and sharing photos on social media using the hashtag #WigWednesdayNZ.
