Becoming a monthly giver

Volunteer your time
No child should die from cancer. By volunteering your time, we can build a better future for children with cancer.
Founded in 1977, the Ladies' Committee is the longest standing volunteer group at Children’s Cancer Institute raising almost $1 million for childhood cancer research. Every dollar goes directly to funding the purchasing of research equipment at Children’s Cancer Institute.
The impact of your support
$30 could protect 4 of our Researchers when working with hazardous chemicals, providing them with the necessary safety glasses and gloves.
$130 could cover the cost of DNA sequencing to identify leukaemia markers, which will be used to monitor the presence of residual leukaemic cells in a child’s body after therapy.
$500 could provide 6 months of antibody to detect abnormal proteins and help save a child’s life.
