Help more children
experience more

This Christmas you can give a child with
cancer the best gift ever. More Christmases.


Christmas is a magical time for a child.

Sadly, not all children get to enjoy the fun and the magic of Christmas.
Every week, 20 kids are diagnsoed with cancer, and three per week are dying.

Children with cancer don't dream of a new bicycle or a pony at Christmas like other kids.
They dream of getting back to an ordinary world.
An ordinary childhood where Christmas can be worry free and magical once again.

This Christmas, please dig deep and donate as much as you can.
Every dollar you donate will be doubled, thanks to the kind support
of Impulsports, NSW Independent Trial Exams and Bowman Books, for matching every donation.*

You will be supporting vital research that will help us find a cure for every child with cancer.
And you'll be helping more children experience more Christmases.

A life should be long.

Maria's story

Cancer robbed Maria of her first Christmas. It also meant her first word, her first steps, her first birthday and her Christening, all happened in hospital.

Everything her mum Cathy had dreamed of for her little girl had been impossible because she spent the first two years of her life being treated for a rare, aggressive cancer.

When a child like Maria survives cancer, their hopes and dreams survive too.
