Welcome to ICCCPO's Web Site


The International Confederation of Childhood Cancer Parent Organisations (ICCCPO) is a worldwide network of organisations of parents of children with cancer.  

It was founded in May 1994 in Valencia, Spain, and now has membership of about 100 organisations from over 60 countries. 

Our focus is on the cooperation and sharing of information and experiences between parent groups around around the world, so that all can benefit from it and become more effective in improving the treatment and care of children with cancer in their own countries.
