Special Named Funds

The Children’s Cancer Foundation’s Special Named Funds have been established by the families of Lilly, Ruby and Marcus as a way of contributing and making a difference while their child was in treatment, in recognition of the support they received from the Foundation during this time, in celebration of successful treatment or in honour of their child.

After their cancer experience, these families established their own charity as a means of helping other families. 100% of the funds raised are dedicated to a specific project or field of childhood cancer research, with all overheads covered by the Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Each Special Named Fund is recognised on our website through a dedicated online fundraising page that details how much money has been raised.

Ruby-Rose Rainbow Fund

Dedicated to raising funds to support leukaemia research, in particular for Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, with the hope that a gentler treatment is discovered with a higher survival rate.

Lillies for Hope Fund

Dedicated to raising funds to support childhood cancer research, in particular for Wilms Tumour, with the hope that future patients do not have to face the hardships like those Lilly went through.

Marcus Rosin Fund

Dedicated to raising funds to support brain tumour research, in particular ependymoma, with the aim of accelerating research into new treatments. 

How can you help?

Lives are changed forever from the moment of a childhood cancer diagnosis. It affects the child and their family for life. Generous donations and supporters are what keep our work – and children – alive.
