Careers

Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is a social service agency with a mission to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families and children impacted by cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being.

Founded in 1992, CCF provides children with cancer and their families the much needed support in their battle against the life threatening illness. Over the years, CCF has helped more than 3200 children and their families at different stages of the illness and recovery. We are also an Institution of Public Character (IPC) registered agency.

Organised by CCF, Hair for Hope is the only head-shaving event in Singapore that serves to raise childhood cancer awareness and funds for CCF. By volunteering to shave, the shavees become CCF’s ambassadors in spreading childhood cancer messages to their family, friends and colleagues when garnering monetary support from them.
