How we help hospitals
The survival rate has increased significantly over the past 20 years and when all cancer types are considered, the survival rate 5 years after diagnosis is 81% for this population group.
The improved survival rates, which have occurred despite stable cancer incidence rates, are due to medical and technological advances. The goal for our hospital funding is to further assist these survival rates and improve the services for children with life threatening cancer and blood disorders. We aim to vastly enhance the ability of the day ward to treat patients efficiently and effectively.
Hospitals we help
Throughout Australia, over 900 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year. The funds we raise goes towards helping hospitals, from improved facilities to research to quality staff and social workers. We have provided more than $23 million in hospital funding since 1998.
