The Childhood Cancer Campaign was established by Optimist International in 2001 with the mission of “being the leading force to rid the world of childhood cancer.” Since the program’s inception, clubs in every district have participated in various activities focused on building awareness of the disease, providing assistance for children and their families, and supporting research to find a cure.
The Childhood Cancer Campaign Program model is built to accentuate four areas of service on which we can focus:
- Support to children diagnosed and receiving treatment for cancer.
- Support to families and care partners of children with Cancer.
- Support to health care and service providers.
- Support for cancer research
It is the goal of the Twin Falls Optimist Club to assist any child in the Magic Valley with Childhood Cancer. May it be transportation, food, lodging, or a wish; our goal is to make each child comfortable during this difficult time.
