Our Mission / Objective

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) is a charity based in Western Australia and has been supporting research into childhood cancers for over 30 years.

The creation of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was inspired by nine year old Jennifer Harper, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1977. When her father, Peter Harper, discovered that there was no research into children’s leukaemia being done in WA, he set out to raise funds for this purpose.Peter, along with other parents of children with cancer and with the support of the state children’s hospital, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was formed.

In 1983 the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Laboratory was established on the hospital campus and in 1984 Dr Ursula Kees, a Swiss born scientist, was recruited from the German Cancer Institute to head up the Unit.

Whilst Jennifer inspired the creation of the Foundation she did not win her fight against leukaemia and sadly died in 1978.

The Research Laboratory has a very co-operative relationship with the Cancer Ward at the Perth Children’s Hospital and plays an integral part in the study of children with cancer. The Laboratory was essential to the establishment of the Bone Marrow Transplantation Program at the children’s hospital, greatly improving childhood leukaemia survival rates.

We reply on the generous support of the public to continue funding vital life-saving research into these diseases.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

Patron: Justin Langer, AM.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

There’s a very special way for you to help children
who suffer from cancers through a gift in your Will that reflects your love and concern for them.

By including the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) in your Will, your thoughtfulness will enable our important
research to continue.

Our children are our future. No one likes to see them suffer. Your very special support will help continue the search for vital breakthroughs in the treatment and prevention of childhood cancers.

A Will is the legal document that ensures your wishes are carried out after your death. Distribution of your assets, may provide for family
and friends, or specific causes and organisations.

Your solicitor will gladly give you advice on making provision for the Foundation in your Will OR you can contact the Public Trustees Office on (08) 9222 6777) for assistance.

If you intend remembering the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) in your Will, we recommend the following legal
wording be used:

“I give to the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) the sum of $………. to assist with research into childhood
leukaemia and cancers.”

Remember – to die without a Will (or intestate) can make it difficult for your family/next of kin to carry out your wishes, even if they are known.

Making a Will should give you peace of mind that comes from planning ahead for those you care for – and children with cancer.
