Children's Cancer Institute

Purpose statement


Every year more than 640 Australian children will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children will die of cancer.


Our organisation exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer.


We don’t just hope to do it.


We will do it.


And we are making great strides.


Sixty years ago, cancer was nearly always a death sentence for a child. Now eight out of 10 children survive. What made that huge difference?


Medical research.


As the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer, our role is vital. Because, despite our progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease.


Our task won’t be easy – childhood cancer is hugely complex – but we’re con?dent that with the brightest brains, the best facilities and the greatest determination, we will get the job done.


It’s not if. It’s when.
