“100% survival for all children with cancer and prevention of their suffering”
To make a difference for children with cancer by raising philanthropic funds for childhood cancer research which can impact on the current clinical standards of care for children with cancer, reduce side effects and improve survival rates.
SWCCF is committed to fundraising partnerships offering financial support for vital research so that every child with cancer can be guaranteed a future and an improved quality of life. You can make a difference by helping us with a donation.
Since 2000, the Foundation has been committed to raising funds for much needed and vital cancer research, supporting the provision of a full range of clinical services to patients, tertiary care and health promotion and prevention programs for children and adolescents.
For every 10 children diagnosed with cancer, three do not survive and here in Australia, that translates to three children losing their lives to cancer every week. We believe that is three children too many. Of those children who survive, many will have chronic health problems as a direct result of their treatments.
There has been significant improvement in the life expectancy of children post diagnosis, however research and clinical trials are essential to ensure we are continually moving forward toward our goal of 100% survival for ALL children.
