Resources for parents of childhood cancer include books, cancer kid camps, hats and wigs, free airline flights and lodging, support organizations, and more as listed below. Rather than keep two versions of these lists, in 2008 ACCO (then Candlelighters) and the Ped-Onc Resource Center joined their lists into one. These reside on the Ped-Onc site for the time being.
