How we help hospitals
More than $24 million in hospital funding to date
Over 800 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in Australia. The funds we raise goes towards helping hospitals to improve their facilities, research, quality staff, social workers, and more.
Improving daily lives and survival rates
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.
