Our research matters

60 years ago, childhood cancer was a death sentence. Today, 8 out of 10 children will survive. But there is much work to be done.
Medical research is how we will cure all children of cancer. 

Worldwide, about 300,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in children and adolescents.

Cancer kills three children every week in Australia – more than any other disease.

70% of children who survive cancer suffer long-term side effects from their treatment.

Give this Christmas to help children like Liliana

When Liliana was just three years old, she was diagnosed with the deadliest childhood cancer, DIPG. There were no options. Your kindness today can change the future for children with DIPG.
