Hi Supporter,

Did you know that every year we need to raise more than 
$1 million to meet the demand for 30 vital services to support 400 children with cancer, and their families.

Given we don't receive any ongoing government funding, we rely solely on the generous support of people like you to help us support families.

You can be a real power behind our ability to grow as the demand for our services grows.

There are so many ways you or your business can be involved. If you're keen, I'd love to hear from you!

Yours sincerely,

Cath O'Loughlin
Chief Executive

Dr Rice has received many prestigious awards for his work over the years and was also responsible for establishing the Childhood Cancer Association in 1982.

Hear what Dr Rice has to say in this amazing interview with Childhood Cancer Ambassador, Mark Soderstrom on Mix102.3.

Oncology Kids Playgroup

Children undergoing oncology treatment have been part of an early intervention program. These children miss out on regular early learning opportunities because of the risk of infection. The pilot program, in conjunction with Ronald McDonald House Adelaide, has been a great success with the playgroup continuing into the future.

Mix102.3 House Rescue

Mix102.3 set the challenge to Jared and Jess from House Rules to renovate our four accommodation units. These units become a “Home Away from Home” for country and interstate families whose child is undergoing cancer treatment in Adelaide.
