Frequently Asked Questions
The Leila Rose Foundation is dedicated to assisting families affected by Rare Childhood Cancer.
We offer support and guidance to families when faced with the painful reality that little may be known about the cancer a ecting their child.
With possibly no known cure available, the foundation assists families so that they feel empowered to make informed choices about their child’s health.
Shaped by our own experience, we understand how disempowering it is to learn that a child has a rare cancer, how diffcult it is to deal with the shock of the diagnosis and the complexity of medical management. The ways that we help eligible families are:
- Providing the resources of a dedicated Family Support Coordinator
- Facilitating access to the latest diagnosis and treatment approaches through our global advisory network
- Financial assistance
The Leila Rose Foundation works alongside the clinical care team to assist families of children diagnosed with rare childhood cancers. In doing so, we work in conjunction with clinicians, nursing staff and patient counsellors to ensure that the family feel supported, understand their options and are assisted with day-to-day activities in order to maximise the prospects for their child.
We do not diagnose or treat any illness or disease, and information provided by us is in no way a substitute for the medical advice of the child’s primary care physician or other medical professionals.
