Welcome to the CHICS website. The Children's Cancer Support Group is based in the North West of the UK, covering Merseyside, the Wirral, North Wales and West Cheshire.

Aims and Functions of CHICS

The Children's Cancer Support Group, formed in 1986, provides support and information for parents of children with cancer by the following means:

  • MEETINGS: Regular meetings to inform members about the many aspects of childhood cancers and to enable members to gain confidence by sharing their experiences with each other.

  • SOCIAL FUNCTIONS: At which you can meet other families on an informal basis.

  • NEWSLETTER: A regular newsletter in which group activities are reported.

  • INFORMATION: A small library of books, leaflets and brochures, has been established for parents to gain more information about cancer treatments and cancer related national bodies.

  • FUND-RAISING: Fund raising events are held to finance the groups activities and to enhance facilities at the hospital.

  • LINK-UPS: CHICS is a founding member of "NACCPO" - the National Alliance of Childhood Cancer Parents Organisations.

  • CARAVAN: CHICS also have a caravan, located in North Wales, for respite use.

The CHICS website is not "
my" site, it is "our" site. It belongs to CHICS and to CHICS members and families. My wife and I joined CHICS in 1993 when our son David, who was just 13 months old, was diagnosed with A.L.L.
