My Story

Thank you for supporting our daughter Isla. Isla was diagnosed on August 11, 2012 with a relatively rare brain tumour called Ependymoma. Treatment has changed little over the last 40-years and long term survival sits between 60-70%. Research is making progress but it is slow because of the lack of funding available to pediatric cancer so truly EVERY dollar counts. My family, my daughter and the many families I have now met going through this journey appreciate your efforts! Thank you!

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
