What we do

The Foundation supports game-changing cancer research projects that aim to eliminate children’s cancer. 

Pure love and passion drive us towards the day where children’s cancer is gone.

The Foundation supports game-changing cancer research projects that aim to eliminate children’s cancer while ensuring children in our hospitals have access to the best possible and latest proven treatments.

We fund clinical research and trials, clinical care and provide family support.

While research is mostly our focus, we know that it is the little things that can significantly help a child, and their family, on their cancer journey.

With the unwavering support of generous individuals and organisations, the Children’s Cancer Foundation continues to operate as a leader in the childhood cancer charity sector.
