A future without brain cancer

"The Children's Brain Cancer Centre unites the best of the best in paediatric brain research to bring new hope to children diagnosed with brain cancer. Brain cancer claims the life of one Australian child every nine days – more than any other disease. Despite advances in other types of childhood cancer, survival rates for brain cancer have made little progress over the past 30 years. The Children’s Brain Cancer Centre aims to change that. Our goal is to improve the survival and survivorship for children with brain cancer.” - Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO, Rosie Simpson.
