DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT NOW

We need your help.
Every Week, 20 Australian kids are diagnosed with cancer.

We know research is the key to curing all kids with cancer. That's why we are dedicated to pioneering more effective and safer treatments for kids with cancer, but we need your help to do it.

Finley (pictured) was only nine years old when his life was cut devastatingly short by a deadly Brain tumour DIPG.

After a busy weekend of sports Finley, had complained he was seeing double and was feeling tired. As the week progressed his parents became concerned and took Finley to Sydney Children’s Hospital. From that moment things spiralled rapidly. 

An MRI scan was ordered and by 6 pm that night, Finley’s parents received the devastating news that Finley had a brain tumour. An incurable tumour called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG. Finley’s parents were faced with the unthinkable. Their child was going to die and there was nothing they could do about it.

Finley’s family is sharing his story to highlight the importance and urgent need for research into this deadly brain tumour DIPG. Donate now and every dollar will be matched!
