What we stand for is in our tag line.

Science. Solutions. Survival.


We believe the only way to improve outcomes for kids with cancer is through advances in medical research.


Our research priorities reflect our focus on finding better treatments, building capabilities and supporting survivorship programs.


Founder, Col Reynolds OAM, promised not to give up until a cure is found. That’s our ultimate aim.

Where it all began

Founder, Col Reynolds OAM, has a steely focus to make a difference to the lives of kids living with cancer.

It all started on an ordinary day in the late 1980s when Col was driving his empty tourist coach past the Children’s Hospital in Camperdown, Sydney. After stopping to let two youngsters with bald heads cross the road, he parked and went into the hospital on the spur of the moment.

Touched by the spirit of everyone he met that day, Col started his personal mission to help kids with cancer in any way he could. Early on, he learned the only way to improve outcomes for these children is through advances in medical research.
This Australian Story program centres on a remarkable friendship between a top scientist and a coach driver with a brave dream to do something about childhood cancer.
