About Us

Tikva LeChaim

Tikva LeChaim is a non-profit organization established in 2003 that offers a wide range of services to assist children suffering from cancer as well as their families. It provides psychological, moral, and physical support to children with cancer who are fighting the battle of their lives.

Tikva LeChaim is different. Its wide spectrum of activities are all focused on the health and welfare of the children and their families ,assisting both directly and indirectly children suffering from cancer and medical staff in most Israeli hospitals’ pediatric oncology departments, with an average of about one hundred child patients at any time.

Tikva LeChaim offers psychological and physical support to children and their families, especially those of lower socioeconomic status. Support is provided while the child is sick, during recovery, and before the child returns to a normal routine. Physical treatment is given in top-level departments that follow international protocols for the treatment. Psychological support not only helps children feel positive, it also shortens hospitalization and saves everybody money.

Tikva LeChaim is an organization devoted to infusing life into children who are fighting for their lives by making them believe in their ability to overcome the illness. Cancer attacks young people, old people, children and infants. Every cancer case is a disaster for the family, but even more so when cancer attacks children, who have their whole lives ahead of them.

Although Tikva LeChaim is not a hospital, it deals with children’s cancer. It can strike in rich, poor, black, white, religious and non-religious, Jewish and non-Jewish groups. No matter the family’s background, their world collapses when a child has cancer.
