Since 2013 Zoé4life supports children with cancer and their families, as well as research.
The priority for children with cancer and their parents is for the treatments to work and to be cured.
CHF 1’650’000 is the amount Zoé4life has put towards funding research in 6 years.
Improving survival rates and providing access to new treatments which offer a better quality of life is one of Zoé4life’s main goals.
Every year in Switzerland, almost 300 children aged 18 and younger are diagnosed with cancer. One child dies of cancer every week. Today, four out of five kids survive, but often with serious long term side effects. Treatment to cure them lasts months or often years.
Zoé4life is recognized as a public service utility and has 4 main goals:
- Support families of children with cancer financially.
- Support and accelerate access to new innovative treatments and research in pediatric oncology so that some day all children have a chance at a cure.
- Finance projects and programs for children during their treatments.
- Raise awareness about childhood cancer.
