Kids with Cancer Foundation is a non for profit organisation located in Castle Hill which supports families of pre-teen children (12yrs & under) in financial difficulties due to their child being treated for cancer. We are currently receiving around 15 requests for financial assistance per week. These requests range from food vouchers, utility bills, car registration, mortgage & rent payments and sadly even funerals.
We also support Hospital Networks around Australia with $5.7 million provided we are a 'Founder' of The Children's Hospital at Westmead and we became the 'Founding Patron' of the ‘Children's Cancer Centre’ at Victoria's Monash Children's providing the total funding ($1.2million) to build and fit-out the Cancer Centre. We support the Oncology Fellow at Women’s and Children’s in Adelaide with over $1.5 million provided since 2003. We fund the full time social worker at Bear Cottage in Sydney’s Manly (their first) as well as two similar positions at Westmead Children’s Hospital and at Monash Children’s in Victoria.
We have given over $22 million in 20 years..
