Make a donation this tax year

Dear supporter


The financial year is coming to an end and there is no better time to make a tax-deductible donation


Your donation to the Children's Cancer Foundation will help us continue our work to fund family support programs, hospital-based clinical care and clinical trials and, importantly, research to help improve treatment outcomes.


This time last year we launched a professional counselling service to support families as they confront the challenges of cancer diagnosis and treatment.


We have helped many cancer patients, their siblings, parents and grandparents, including Samantha. Thank you to Samantha who shares with us her experience of how professional counselling helped her process her son’s diagnosis.


If you or a family you know is struggling to cope with childhood cancer, I encourage you to contact us for support.


Thank you for your support.

Taking Back Control

When Samantha's teenage son was diagnosed with cancer, it set her on an emotional rollercoaster.

"Until someone has been given the news that we were given, you can’t imagine what it really puts you through," said Samantha. "I felt embarrassed and selfish for needing help – it wasn’t me that was sick…it was my son." 


Read more about how Samantha regained her strength and positivity through professional counselling.
