You don't have to be a scientist to help kids like Tommy survive cancer.

Make a major impact

The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity funding childhood cancer research. We fund research projects all across Australia focusing on bold science that has the greatest chance of success to improve childhood cancer treatments.

Philanthropic support plays a pivotal role in driving crucial medical research aimed at developing kinder and less toxic treatments for children going through cancer. Together, we can improve the lives of young children and give them a brighter and better future.

We are committed to working closely with our major supporters to ensure your gift is funding a research project that you’re most passionate about. Together we can make a major impact.

Survival starts with science

Associate Professor Rishi Kotecha is currently carrying out an exciting five-year clinical trial across multiple medical institutions. The trial, called Interfant-21, stands to revolutionise the standard treatment for high-risk children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

The Kids’ Cancer Project has provided incredible longstanding support for my preclinical research, which has focused on improving the dismal outcome for infants diagnosed under one year of age with ALL. The funding has been vital to building a pre-clinical testing pipeline where my team and I have tested promising new drugs on unique models of the disease.

Your support today is vital in helping support pioneering research trials such as the Interfant-21 project. By making a gift today, you could help ensure future trials have the resources they need to develop more effective treatments with fewer negative side-effects.
