The Oncology and Haematology programme is available through the hospital to all children in the UK. For the last 6 years this programme has been sponsored by Be Child Cancer Aware. In 2019 it will be sponsored by Children with Cancer UK
The Programme supports any baby, child, teen or young adult (0-24yrs) going through any cancer treatment or haematology treatment on cancer wards.
Oncology is supported from induction, through treatment, surgeries, maintenance and hopefully to the end of treatment, upon which they will receive a purple heart as a symbol of the battle they faced.
Haematology is supported through their entire treatment, up until the transfer to adult services, where members will receive their red heart as an acknowledgment to their battle and maturing in to an adult.
