Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) is delighted to announce that Hyundai Help for Kids Foundation will be supporting a three year research project focussed on uncovering a cure for childhood cancer being jointly undertaken at two Australian hospitals at the forefront of paediatric oncology clinical research.
Hyundai Help for Kids (HH4K) has committed $450,000 over three years to support the Hyundai Help for Kids Cancer Research Program, a joint project which will be undertaken at the Kids Cancer Centre (KCC) at Sydney Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Centre (CCC) at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne.
The Hyundai Help for Kids Cancer Research Project takes the relationship between SWCCF and HH4K to a new level and creates a partnership in discovery. Seeking to fast-track a breakthrough in finding a cure for childhood cancers through the targeted program, three leading researchers will be appointed to focus on uncovering new treatments for children with cancer and leukaemia, both for newly diagnosed and relapsed patients. The research will also focus on developing Personalised Cancer Care for High Risk Cancers, whereby treatment response in patients will be intimately measured, monitored and managed.
Since 2000, Hyundai has worked with SWCCF on a number of initiatives helping to raise over $265,000 to date, as well as providing a vehicular grant for our fantastic iLoad. SWCCF is now the proud beneficiary of Hyundai Help for Kids, Hyundai Motor Company Australia and Hyundai Dealers’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiative. Since inception in January 2014, HH4K has raised over $1,700,000 for causes assisting young Australians and their families.
