History & Background

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 themselves, this committed group, with the consultation of Paediatric Oncologist Dr Michael Rice, established the grounds for what is today one of Australia's key childhood cancer support organisations, dedicated to providing ongoing practical and hands on support to children with cancer, and their families.

The Association employs 4 full time and 4 part time staff.

Help us make a difference today!

The Childhood Cancer Association is a fully self-funded organisation and therefore relies on the generous support of the community.

Childhood cancer presents many challenges for the child and their family. It affects not only the child but their brothers and sisters, parents, grandparents, friends and the whole community.

The Childhood Cancer Association provides support to the entire family.

Please help us make the cancer journey easier for these families!
