Child Cancer Research Donations & Fundraising Options

Thankyou for supporting research into child cancer and Children’s Leukaemia! 

Research facilities funded by community support

Resarch undertaken in the Research Laboratory and clinical services provided by the Hospital are essential for the maintenance of the high standard of patient care that these sick children need. Only in this way is it possible to apply new discoveries from research to the continual upgrading of leukaemia and cancer treatment. The ongoing improvements in treatment benefits child cancer treatment both in Australia and worldwide.

Foundation History

Jennifer HarperThe creation of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was inspired by 9 year old Jennifer Harper, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1977. When her father, Peter Harper, discovered that there was no research into children’s leukaemia being done in WA, he set out to raise funds for this purpose.

Together with other parents of children with cancer and with the support of Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was formed. Read More
