September: International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 

70% of Australians are unaware that more kids die from cancer than any other disease in this country. With awareness comes the support so vitally needed to fund lifesaving kids' cancer research projects. Government funding only stretches so far and so the generous support of people like you is needed to help fund the science that we know will lead to survival. Here are some ways you can get involved to shine a light on childhood cancer research:

Shine a spotlight on childhood cancer


Challenge your imagination!

Write a Book in a Day is a fun, creative challenge that sees budding writers and illustrators create a book in just one day! Perfect for helping unlock creativity, the competition encourages literacy, teamwork and resilience. writeabookinaday.com


Donate a cuddly friend to a sick child
... or take one home

Hospital can be a scary time for a child, but you can give them a soft toy so they never feel alone or afraid during their treatment. Or purchase a cuddly companion for yourself or a loved one, knowing the funds contribute to the science of curing cancer.
