My Story

Thank you for stopping by. You'll have your own reasons why you're supporting this initiative and I thank you for all of them! I'd like to share what makes it meaningful to me. Children are our future. No child should go through anything like childhood cancer. This is my main reason for supporting the Children's Cancer Institute - to help find a cure. I'm also doing this as a father of a 5 year old boy. I want him to see there's so much more to life than just work, shopping, travel and entertainment. There's solidarity, empathy, support and celebration of human life. Everyone can inspire, take a step to help, make a change starting from themselves. Hopefully this one example encourages my son Aron to keep being an active member of our community in the future. I'm doing this as a human being who cherishes life. This is a great opportunity not only to raise money for CCIA but also to meet like-minded people, get fitter! What shook me most was the fact that thanks to research on average 8 out of 10 children are cured today comparing to a death sentence 60 years ago. Research is everything. Please donate so a hope to achieve 10 out 10 children being cured becomes a reality in the future. The research work that Children's Cancer Institute does is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Children’s Cancer Institute create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Children’s Cancer Institute

Our purpose
Every year 950 Australian children and adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents 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 confident 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.
