About Children’s Cancer Institute

Every month in Australia, 86 children are diagnosed with cancer, and 12 of them won't survive. Of those who do survive, two-thirds will have long term side effects from their treatment. Children’s Cancer Institute exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer through research. We don't just hope to do it, we will do it.

By taking part in 86K for a Cure, you'll be raising vital funds to support research and help save lives.

Our research

Our research is dedicated to understanding the various potential causes of childhood cancer, in order to develop better treatments, and ultimately, find a cure to help save lives.

The researchers at Children’s Cancer Institute pioneered the ‘Zero Childhood Cancer Program’, Australia’s first precision medicine program for children with cancer. Due to the success of the program, all children and young people with cancer in Australia will be able to access this kind of precision medicine by the end of 2023, providing these kids with another, potentially more effective type of treatment that could save countless lives.

There are so many other research projects, new and ongoing, that you will be helping to fund when you conquer 86K for a Cure this March.
