The family of late cancer patient, 14-year-old Rohan Bloom, in partnership with a children’s doctor at Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, has launched a foundation to support children living with cancer.

The foundation also aims to provide care and a support system to families of terminally-ill children in and around Cape Town.

A top priority of the foundation is to establish a hospice facility that will accommodate both children and their families in their time of need.

Located less than 2km from Red Cross, the three-storey facility is under construction.
