Major gifts

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

Will you say K’day to better kids’ cancer treatments?

Every 15 February − International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day − we replace the Aussie favourite G’day with K’day in recognition of the 950 kids diagnosed with cancer in Australia each year.

But it’s about more than just saying K’day − it’s about taking action, helping to fund research into better treatments and helping give kids with cancer their childhoods back.

By donating ahead of K’day next year, you’ll be supporting vital kids’ cancer research and inspiring others to do the same. Any gift you kindly make will be used to match the generosity of other people on 15 February, meaning together, you’ll have double the impact on childhood cancer.

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.
