Our Mission / Objective

Every week in Australia, 20 kids are diagnosed with cancer.  That’s a full classroom of kids, every single week.

Our organisation exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer.

We just don’t hope to do it.

We will do it.

And we are making great strides.

Sixty years ago cancer was a death sentence for a child. Thanks to medical research the overall survival rate for childhood cancer has now risen to over 80%.

Medical research

As the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to children’s cancer, our role is vital. Because despite our progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease.

Our task won’t be easy – childhood cancer is hugely complex – but we are confident with the brightest brains, the best facilities and greatest determination we will get the job done.

It’s not if. It’s when.

Our Services

Children’s Cancer Institute has state-of-the-art laboratories that are fully equipped for molecular and genetic research studies.

Our research takes a multi-pronged approach to tackling childhood cancer. Whether it’s investigating causes and prevention, improving diagnosis and monitoring, or developing better treatments, our research is all about improving the lives of children and their families.

Projects in Progress

  • Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute wholly dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer.
  • Advances in knowledge and treatment found through medical research have delivered the improved survival rates we see today.
  • Only medical research will give hope to the tens of thousands children worldwide who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
  • Every child is unique, every cancer is different, so the cure has to be targeted for each individual.
  • We believe personalised medicine is the key to improving survival, saving lives and giving children with cancer the best possible quality of life.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Cancer is a merciless disease. In a child, it is heartbreakingly cruel. Those who survive often have lifelong side-effects. The fear of it lurks in every unexplained pain, every sniffle. Life is never truly carefree again.  

We can and we will find a cure. But we need to work together. A gift in your Will has the power to change the world for these children. It is a legacy of hope. You can help bring back the joy into so many young lives. 

Everything we have achieved at Children’s Cancer Institute has been because of people like you, who have given selflessly to help us work towards better treatments for children with cancer. We know with you by our side, so much is possible. 

In Memoriam Gift

Honour someone special by making an In Memoriam Gift in their memory.

The passing of someone special can be a very difficult time for family and friends.

Traditionally we pay respect to our departed loved ones through a gift of flowers.

However, many people find comfort in making a donation in lieu of flowers to remember the life of the one who has passed.

Making a donation in this way a meaningful way to pay tribute to a loved one who has passed, while supporting our research and, most importantly, the advances that such support allow us to make in the treatment of childhood cancer.

When you make a memorial donation for a loved one or friend, Children’s Cancer Institute will send a letter on your behalf to the family acknowledging your thoughtful gift.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

General Donations

On average, nearly three children die from cancer in Australia every week. For us, that’s three too many. Curing childhood cancer isn’t a matter of if, but when. With the best and brightest researchers, latest technology and your generosity, we will get the job done.

Give regularly

All children deserve a childhood free from cancer. Join our community of like-minded individuals who are funding future research to end the suffering of children with cancer.

You can help make curing childhood cancer a reality by making a donation today.
