Welcome to The Kids' Cancer Project

We are an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research. Since 1993, thanks to strong community support, we have been able to contribute tens of millions of dollars to scientific studies to help children with many types of cancer.

Our mission is to support bold science that has the greatest chance of clinical success to improve childhood cancer treatments. Our vision is to see a one hundred per cent survival rate for children with cancer while eradicating the harmful impacts treatment can bring.
