Who we are

Survival Starts with Science.

Value Proposition

Together we can create the opportunities for science to help kids survive and thrive, by accelerating funding for life-changing childhood cancer research.


Our Mission

To provide scientists with the funding they need to make discoveries, translate pioneering research, advance treatments and build support programs that will improve survival rates for all young people with cancer and allow them to thrive after treatment.

Our Vision

To see 100% of children, adolescents and young adults survive cancer and live with no long-term health implications caused by their treatment.

My promise is to never give up until every child survives cancer with minimal or no long term effects.

Our Focus

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.
