Throughout the year, numerous amazing community members devote their time, energy and talent to organizing a wide variety of third party events. Childcan also organizes a few of our own “signature” events during the year, a time to gather with our community in support of our families and children.
Please consider supporting us by hosting, attending or donating to one – or more – of these fabulous activities.
Omar’s Carnival For Childcan
June 28 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Omar Alwani, at age 2, was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer, Wilms tumor. He underwent surgery to have his right kidney removed and proceeded to undergo chemotherapy treatment. It is with great pleasure and happiness as of January 23, 2020, he was deemed cured, cancer free. Without the aid and support of Childcan and the amazing staff of LHSC Children’s Hospital in London, my family and I would not have been able to survive this tragic ordeal. As a small token of gratitude and appreciation for all of the support from Childcan and LHSC Children’s Hospital, we are hosting the Omar Children’s Festival in support of Childcan.
This year the event will take place on Sunday June 28, 2020 at YMCA Bostwick Community Centre, 501 Southdale Road West in London. All of the proceeds support Childcan and the families we serve in London and throughout Southwestern Ontario, providing direct financial assistance, social and emotional support, funding research at LHSC Children’s Hospital in London.
