Who we are

Driven by love. Inspired by science

Making a difference to the lives of kids living with cancer

Because we can imagine what a world without suffering from cancer looks like for children and their families.

Our Mission

To support bold science that has the greatest chance of clinical success to improve childhood cancer treatments.

Our Vision

To see a one hundred per cent survival rate for children with cancer while eradicating the harmful impacts treatment can bring.


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


Our focus is to find better treatments, build capabilities and develop survivorship programs.


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

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.
