As a Wallaby we were lucky enough to be able to raise the spirits of kids in hospitals with regular visits to see them. When you are first confronted with a child with cancer it affects you forever! You cannot forget the sight of a child undergoing treatment and you cannot forget the sobs from family members as their child dies in front of their eyes. That’s why I’m involved.
The ability to solve childhood cancer is within our reach and developments have come so far. I’ve been involved with the Children’s Cancer Institute for 17 years and will support them for long into the future. With support, they can beat this thing.

About Children's Cancer Institute

Children’s Cancer Institute exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer. We don’t just hope to do it. We will do it. Children's Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to curing childhood cancer, this is important because children get different cancer than adults.

Our focus is on translational research, working closely with clinicians in paediatric hospitals throughout Australia to ensure our discoveries are progressed into actual treatments for kids with cancer as quickly as possible.

"Our Vision is to save the lives of all children with cancer and eliminate their suffering."- Professor Michelle Haber AM, Executive Director, Children's Cancer Institute.

We are curing Childhood Cancer- It's not if. It's when.
