Let’s give kids with cancer the best life after treatment.

Research is helping more children survive and live with cancer. However, diagnosis and treatment disrupts education which impacts social and academic skill development.

Little Grace is one of the lucky ones. Despite low immunity, the fact she wears a nappy and is hooked up to an IV pole, the energetic five-year-old started school and loves it more than anything.

Maureen Wignell, Grace’s kindy teacher, visited her in hospital several times to understand the new student’s needs before she came into the classroom.

“My role was to provide a safe and inviting learning environment for Grace so she could share in the same experiences as her classmates,” Maureen said.

Unfortunately, not every school is so supportive.

Children with cancer need an integrated approach to their ongoing care. You can help kids like Grace by funding programs which will help them have happy and fulfilling lives. Read Grace's Story
