      • The “Flight to the North Pole” is a magical trip for children and their families, (who believe) who are suffering from childhood cancer, and have never been to the North Pole before. The purpose of this event is to give the families a memory of a happy time together and to remove them (for a few hours) from the day-to-day concerns they have to deal with.
