Event description

Description

Kids Cancer Support Group are extremely proud to be bringing together an incredible range of community experts to share their knowledge on childhood cancer.

The WA Childhood Cancer Conference 2018 aims to provide parents, carers, families, supporters, and professionals in the WA community with a day where they can 'Learn. Reflect. Bond. Unite.'

Childhood cancer is a life changing journey that touches people in so many ways and we had a dream of creating an event where the WA community could access a range of information for FREE in one place. This event has been funded with the help of Pfizer Cares Community Collaboration Grant.

KCSG have co-ordinated 20 presentations by experts over 5 sessions to be held on Sunday 26th August 2018 at the Cancer Wellness Centre in Cottesloe. (It's wheelchair friendly too)

Attendees can choose one presentation in each session. That means you can catch 5 presentations over the course of the day. A delicious morning tea will be topped up with lunch to keep you fuelled up for the afternoon.

Just scroll down to see all of the presentations on offer, then register for your chosen sessions by clicking or tapping the registration button and selecting from the list.

Places are limited so the sooner you register, the sooner you will secure your spot.



IS YOUR PREFERRED SESSION FULL? - If you find one of your preferred sessions is already full/sold out, please register for your other sessions and let us know via email to events@kcsg.org.au which session you missed out on. We will put your name on the waitlist and let you know if a spot becomes available.
