Our Mission / Objective

Each year in Australia, 500 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer and three children each week lose their battle to this insidious disease. It is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children.

The Kids’ Cancer Project funds the best and brightest researchers without geographical or institutional barriers to find a cure for childhood cancer. We won’t stop until 100% of children diagnosed with cancer survive. Because we are not bound to any one institution we are able to fund research projects that complement each other.

Projects in Progress

50 years ago only 2% of children with cancer survived. Today, thanks to medical research, the survival rate for all childhood cancers across the board is around 80%. But it is the most aggressive forms of childhood cancers, such as brain tumours and neuroblastoma, with the lowest survival rates that we focus on. Some of our current projects include:

  • Drug Discovery Program – bringing a new drug toward clinical trial in the next twelve months to deliver better treatment with fewer side effects.
  • A new treatment to better target neuroblastoma by switching on and off compounds within cancer cells.
  • Childhood Cancer Cytoskeleton Consortium – C4 – a consortium of some of the best researchers across Australia collaborating together to find a cure for childhood cancer.
  • Gene Therapy Program – clinical trial of a treatment for brain tumours which enables higher doses of chemotherapy to be delivered, while protecting a child’s bone marrow.

All research funded by The Kids’ Cancer Project is overseen by our Research Advisory Committee, comprising some of the best cancer specialists across the globe.
