About Our Auction
Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? This September, support OPACC's critical work in providing free programs and services to families of children diagnosed with cancer in Ontario! All proceeds from this auction will support our key programs including the Parent Liaison program (peer-to-peer, psychosocial support & resources provided virtually and in-hospital), Hospital Parking program (helps families pay for the costs of hospital parking), and Gift Card program (provides families with gift cards to help pay for necessities such as groceries and gas).
Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer (OPACC) was created in 1995 by parents of children with cancer with a mission to support families of children diagnosed with cancer in Ontario.
We support families with free programs and services, including:
- Parent Liaison Program: In-hospital and virtual, peer-to-peer, psychosocial support provided by trained parents of children that have had cancer;
- Community support through community-based parent support groups;
- Financial support through our Hospital Parking and Gift Card programs...and more! Learn more on our website at www.opacc.org
OPACC receives no government or hospital funding and all funding for the development of our programs, services and special events (which are provided at no cost to our families) comes from the donations of generous organizations, businesses, foundations, and individuals.
The funds raised from this auction will support our free programs and services for childhood cancer families in Ontario, including our Parent Liaison Program, Hospital Parking Program, and Gift Card Program. We currently have over 1,000 active member Ontario childhood cancer families.
