Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia
When you make a donation to any charity there is always a real concern:
“how much of my dollar gets through to the cause”.
100% of all donations to Kids with Cancer Foundation are passed on to struggling families of kids with cancer and to children’s hospitals where they are treated.
No management fees, salaries or any running costs of the Foundation are taken from our ‘Gift Account’, and that is our promise to cancer families and our supporters. Our cancer foundation donations are only used for families who are struggling financially, and have a child in one of our Australian children’s hospitals being treated for a brain tumor, leukemia and all other childhood cancer, or directly to children’s hospitals.
Cancer families must travel to a major city children’s hospital to have their child treated for a brain tumor, leukemia or other childhood cancers, and the cost can cripple a family’s available income over this treatment period, which is at the least months and usually years. We have no maximum dollar amount per family/per year as we take each social worker’s request on merit when it’s received.
You can help a family of a young child with cancer today, by ensuring that your donation to a children’s cancer charity will get through to the kids in its entirety.
Donate by free call to: 1800 255522, or mail cheques to, Kids with Cancer Foundation PO Box 7000 Baulkham Hills BC NSW 2153.
Our cancer foundation funds assist doctors, nurses, families and support groups involved in caring for only the youngest of children suffering with a brain tumor, leukemia and all other childhood cancers, from new born babies to young teenagers. The money we raise and the donations we receive, are allocated by our founding committee, benefiting, both public hospitals with children’s oncology units and families who find themselves placed in financial difficulties, due to their child being treated for cancer.
As a cancer foundation we have been in contact with all children’s hospitals throughout Australia, with an offer of assistance. To date we have provided funding to eight hospitals in four States and The Northern Territory and family assistance (through the social workers) in nine children’s hospitals: Sydney Children’s, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, John Hunter Newcastle, Royal Brisbane, Monash Children’s in Victoria, Mater Children’s Brisbane, Canberra, Women’s & Children’s Adelaide and Princess Margaret Perth.
