Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

In September, we honour children with cancer and the community supporting them.

Shine a spotlight on this devastating disease in September 

Seventy per cent of Australians are unaware that more kids die from cancer than any other disease in this country. With awareness, comes support. Government funding only stretches so far so it is vital the community step up to help fund the scientific research so urgently needed. Here are some ways you can get involved to shine a light on childhood cancer research.
