Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
The Children's Cancer Foundation's mission is to enable children with cancer to access the worlds best treatment and support and to build awareness of childhood cancer in the community and within governments. The Foundation supports families undergoing treatment, partners with hospitals to deliver clinical excellence and invests in clinical research and clinical trials to develop new and kinder treatments for children with cancer. The Foundation supports families through the stress of cancer treatment by funding the salaries of Family Resource Coordinators, by funding family counselling services, providing therapeutic storybooks and Music and Art Therapy to assist children with adapting to treatment. The Foundation also funds The Beaded Journey, a therapeutic program which helps each patient mark every treatment milestone with a special bead; this program assists children and their families to cope with their cancer experience and relate their experience visually. In 2017 the Foundation announced major grant commitments of $8.5 million for projects that span the cancer treatment journey, from family support and clinical care to ground breaking clinical research and clinical trials, including one national project. At all times, the Foundation raises funds efficiently and ethically. The Foundation does not conduct public raffles or telemarketing. Funds are raised through The Million Dollar Lunch, community fundraising, corporate sponsorship and donations. A volunteer board of directors and a large team of dedicated volunteers help us maximise our fundraising income, while the generosity of many pro bono supporters office space, marketing, design, legal and insurance ensure that our administration overheads over the past 5 years have averaged just 14%.
