Annual Report

Since 1992, the Children’s Cancer Foundation has been committed to its mission: to enable children with cancer to access the world’s best treatment and support.

In 2015/16, we made significant strides towards achieving our mission by: 

  • raising a record-breaking $3,040,584 through The Million Dollar Lunch, fundraisers, individual and corporate donations, bequests and charity partnerships;
  • committing $2.79 million for 12 new hospital and research-based projects from 2016 to 2021. We have prioritised research training for oncologists, resourcing of clinical trials and funding of innovative, translational research projects;
  • resourcing 19 clinical trials to allow 74 children access to new treatments, including an Australian-first immunotherapy clinical trial for leukaemia, which uses a patient’s own genetically modified immune cells to attack cancer cells; and
  • increasing our funding by 16% for family support projects and therapeutic clinical services such as music and art therapy because we know these powerful programs can significantly help a child throughout cancer treatment. 

We invite you to download our inaugural Annual Report for 2015/16 to learn more about how with your help, we are making a positive impact on the lives of children with cancer.
