teens.aboutkidshealth.ca/cancer provides teens with information on different types of childhood cancer, and how to best manage treatment now and in the future
Taking Charge: Managing Cancer Online Program is a new online learning hub that provides youth with information on what to expect during cancer diagnosis and treatment. Youth and their families can also learn about some of the challenges they might face during treatment, and what to expect when treatment is complete.
Developed by a research team led by Dr. Jennifer Stinson at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), the program is hosted on AboutKidsHealth.ca and is free for anyone to use!

Terry Fox is the first person to be honoured with the Ac2orn Order of the Oak award recognizing excellence in childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer research and advocacy in Canada.
Advocacy for Canadian Childhood Oncology Research Network, Ac2orn, announced today that Terry Fox will receive the first Order of the Oak award recognizing excellence in childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer research and advocacy in Canada. The Order of the Oak is an award that will be given out yearly during the month of September in recognition of childhood cancer awareness month.
At Ac2orn, we believe that childhood cancer can lead to better treatment for all Canadians,” said Patrick Sullivan, a co-founder of Ac2orn. “We wanted the award to recognize someone who through advocacy or research exemplifies leadership and has made a significant contribution to advancing Canadian cancer research. When it comes to leadership and contribution we could think of no one more deserving of the inaugural Order of the Oak than Terry Fox.”
