We fund life-saving research to create new and better treatments for children with cancer.

Help children survive and thrive.

Proudly Supporting

We take pride in supporting these hospitals and medical research institutions dedicated to improving the lives of children fighting 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.

Victorian Paediatric Cancer Consortium

Generating world-class cancer research.

The Victorian Paediatric Cancer Consortium (VPCC) has enabled a state-wide, multidisciplinary, and collaborative approach to combatting childhood cancers.

The most important event you will contribute to this year.

The Children’s Cancer Foundation’s premier fundraising event, The Million Dollar Lunch, was introduced in 2005 and has helped contribute to the Foundation’s total investment of more than $69 million to support children with cancer and their families since 1992.

Start a fundraiser to help fast track much-needed childhood cancer research.
