We strive to help fund the fight against childhood cancers at the RCH.
Area: Cancer research
The story so far
Cancer Crusaders started in October 2013. Our story is quite short, but in that time we have managed to raise ove $300,000.
Each year we host 2 High Tea’s, an Dinner Dance, an Oaks Day Function and our extravaganza Christmas Marker Night. Along with monthly stalls and Market days at RCH.
What we are working on
We are now entering out 4th year of funding a Brain Tumour Clinical Trial Project. We are very happy with the progress of the trial, as before we began funding, less than 7% of children with a brain tumour were being offered a trial and now that percentage has risen to 94%.
As part of this project we fund the position of Brain Tumour Study Coordinator, a grant which is helping change the way children are diagnosed and treated at the RCH.
