Proudly Supporting

We’re proud to be supporting these hospitals and medical research institutes dedicated to improving the lives of children with cancer now and in the future.

“Children’s Cancer Foundation funding is enabling us to implement an innovative paediatric cancer research program. Through this research we are gaining a better understanding of cancer biology and envisage it will translate into targeted, less harmful therapies for children with cancer.” ~ Professor Elizabeth Hartland, Director and CEO 

“Without the advocacy and extensive and long-term funding from the Children’s Cancer Foundation we could not have developed our clinical and research program to the extent that we currently enjoy.” ~ Peter Downie, Head, Centre for Cancer and Blood Diseases 

“Monash University is proud to collaborate with the Children’s Cancer Foundation and the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in research programs that aim to improve treatment and give hope to children diagnosed with cancer.” ~ Professor Eric Morand, Head, School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health 

“The Children’s Cancer Foundation funding has propelled our paediatric cancer research program, allowing us to break new ground in genomics, stem cell medicine and clinical trials, which are offering newfound hope to the improvement of diagnosis and treatment for children with cancer.“ ~ Professor Kathryn North AM, Director 

“The Children’s Cancer Foundation funding has provided vital support for ground breaking national studies investigating novel treatment approaches for children with cancer. This support is critical to help us work towards improved outcomes and reduced side-effects for our patients.” ~ A/Prof David Ziegler, Kids Cancer Centre 

“The Children’s Cancer Foundation’s major support of research over many years has enabled the development of a new generation of diagnostic genomic tests. Expanding our clinical trials portfolio and helping us keep at the forefront of new immunotherapies, and supporting comprehensive clinical care has also been made possible by the Foundation.” ~ Dr Françoise Méchinaud, Children’s Cancer Centre.
