About POGO


The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) acts as the representative voice of the childhood cancer community, ensuring that all children in Ontario receive equal access to state-of-the-art care.  POGO has been working on behalf of children with cancer (and their families) for over 25 years.


Every year over 400 children in Ontario are diagnosed with cancer, and at any point in time, over 4,000 children in this province require cancer care.  While 82% of children survive, over 60% of them will face physical, cognitive or psychosocial late effects.  While other organizations that help kids with cancer focus on a particular aspect of the child's cancer journey, POGO is there every step of the way.


Why Become a Monthly Donor?


By joining the POGO Monthly Donor Program you are positively impacting the lives of children with cancer and their families.  Your ongoing support will give stable funding for today and tomorrow, allowing POGO to plan ahead, knowing that we have your support. The benefits of membership include:


* an annual tax receipt;

* automatic credit card deductions on the 15th of every month - it's easy to give;

* regular updates on POGO programs;

* an invitation to POGO events;

* recognition as a monthly donor in POGO materials.


Why Give Monthly vs. One-time?


Your contribution goes further, helping more children and their families.  For example, when a child is diagnosed with cancer, the out-of-pocket costs associated with treatment can consume up to 1/3 of a family's after tax income.


* For just $10 per month, you help provide a parent with a meal while they have to be at the hospital, sometimes for very long hours, during their child's treatment


* For $20 per month, you help provide a night's accomodation to a family that has to leave their home town and travel to a major city centre for their child's care


* For $30 per month, you help provide hours of child care to siblings so that the parents can be with their ill child while he or she is receiving chemotherapy or radiation
