History & Background
The Childhood Cancer Association was formed
in 1982 by a group of parents of children with cancer.
Responding to the needs they had identified, this committed group, under the consultation of Paediatric Oncologist Dr Michael Rice, established the grounds for what is today South Australia's key childhood cancer support organsiation, dedicated to providing ongoing practical and hands on support to children living with cancer, and their families.
Originally run by a group of volunteer parents, by 1992, the demands on our services far outweighed the capacity of our volunteers.
The Association now employs 4 full time and 5 part time staff. Click here to meet the Childhood Cancer Association team.
