International Childhood Cancer Day 2017
On the 15th of February, Childhood Cancer International marked the 15th year of the International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD). Through collaborative initiatives among CCI members and with coalition partners like SIOP, SIOPE, UICC, NCD-CHILD, IAP, ICPCN, Max Foundation and St Baldricks Foundation, ICCD has become a highly visible calendar event commemorated not just by the CCI family but by its partners, allies and supporters all over the world. This year, more than 100 countries had ICCD celebrations. We feature 3 unique events from 3 continents : Asia, Europe and Latin America.
Anyo Run 2017 was an absolute success! The streets of Tangerang went gold in three run course (5K, 10K & 16,8K).
For the 3rd year in a row, Anyo Foundation organized a great community event to commemorate International Childhood Cancer Day and honor the memory of Anyo (Andrew Marulli David Manullang), the only son of the founders of Yayasan Anyo Indonesia (YAI). See the video
This party was personally hosted by Her Excellency, Maya Manolova, the Ombudsman of the Republic of Bulgaria. The wearing of pajamas symbolize and call attention to the long periods of treatment and hospitalization of children/adolescents with cancer. The event was meant to bring smiles and a moment of joy&fun to the kids undergoing treatment. It also called public and government attention to the needs of children/adolescents with cancer.

ICCD in Finland is marked by our member Sylva Ry, in a very unique way. Chairs that represent and honor kids with cancer diagnosed the previous year (blue for boys, red for girls) as well as those lost to childhood cancer (white with candle) are placed in a busy part of Helsinki.
This visual representation is a stark reminder of how childhood cancer is very real and is a threat to our families and communities. It is also a call to work together for the kids, families and survivors of childhood cancer.
Hear the stories of hope, courage, determination, love and kindness. At CCF, they believe that unity is strength and "together, we are stronger" in helping children win their battle against cancer. Watch the Video
