Who is Elliot?
Elliot is the Childhood Cancer Association mascot and friend to children living with cancer. Every child diagnosed with cancer in South Australia, receives an Elliot to help them through their journey.
Elliot also makes the perfect gift for all ages, and a unique and thoughtful corporate gift.
Children (and their siblings) can write letters to Elliot, and post these either at the Childhood Cancer Association office, or at the Women's & Children's Hospital.
Children will quite often share their concerns with Elliot, or ask questions, which they may not feel comfortable asking anyone else. 'Elliot' responds to all letters.
Post your letters to Elliot at:
Childhood Cancer Association Office
L1/55 King William Rd, North Adelaide
Women's & Children's Hospital
Michael Rice Centre for Oncology & Haematology
Email Elliot - firstname.lastname@example.org
Elliot’s Tips for Brothers and Sisters
The Childhood Cancer Association has recently developed a tip book for siblings who have a brother/sister with cancer.
The purpose of this book is to provide siblings, some understanding about the changes in their family, environment and different emotions they may be experiencing, and to provide them with some useful strategies that they may be able to employ to help them through the cancer journey.
It is hoped that this book will be a fun and exciting way to engage children in discussing how they are feeling and may also encourage them to begin to ask some more questions along the way.
For further information about the book or to receive a copy please contact the Family Service Team on 8239 2211.
The Elliot Program is proudly supported by the Amber Reinders Childhood Cancer Trust
Help us make a difference today!
The Childhood Cancer Association is a fully self-funded organisation and therefore relies on the generous support of the community.
Childhood cancer presents many challenges for the child and their family. It affects not only the child but their brothers and sisters, parents, grandparents, friends and the whole community.
The Childhood Cancer Association provides support to the entire family.
Please help us make the cancer journey easier for these families!
