Childhood cancer is not the same as adult cancer

    • It can occur in different parts of the body and respond differently to treatment.
    • Researchers and doctors are yet to discover what causes childhood cancer and there is no prevention.
    • Lifestyle choices and genetics are rarely attributed to the disease developing. 
    • Children develop different types of cancer to adults yet often receive the same treatments. These, however, do not always help children with cancer. That’s why we need new and specific child-friendly treatments.
    • Some cancers in children continue to have a very poor prognosis with only fifty percent of children diagnosed with neuroblastoma and brain cancer expected to survive.
    • Thank you. Every small effort and donation counts to making a large difference.

Kids Cancer Project

The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity dedicated to supporting childhood cancer research. Kids' cancer is different to adult cancer. Current treatments like radiation and chemotherapy are very harsh causing many kids to develop side-effects long after treatment has ended.

The Kids’ Cancer Project was founded in 1993 by Col Reynolds who decided to step up and do something to help. Now, thanks to community support, the charity has committed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer.

Science is making an impact, providing new treatment options and giving hope to the 950 children and young adolescents diagnosed each year.

If you believe science is the solution join us. By working together, we will make a difference to help kids with cancer.
