Science is the solution for kids like Alex

It’s 25 years since The Kids’ Cancer Project started. While medical research has come a long way, there’s further to go. This Easter we are putting a spotlight on brain cancer. Survival rates are so low; this specific disease is responsible for more childhood deaths than any other.

Twelve years ago, Alex Rizzo was diagnosed with medulloblastoma - a tumour that develops in the cerebellum; the area at the back of the brain that controls movement and coordination. His was an aggressive tumour that had spread down his spinal cord. 

As a 15-year-old high school student today, Alex doesn’t allow the disease he had as a small child define him. However, he will live with the side-effects of treatment for the rest of his life. Read more.
 
Please give this Easter so kids like Alex get the right treatment for them.


We fund research to help kids with cancer.
