Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease

The Centre for Child and Adolescent Brain Cancer Research seeks to reduce chronic side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.

We want to stop relapse and recurrence of brain cancer, and reduce the likelihood of a child developing secondary cancers. We want to find better ways to support sick children and their families throughout their cancer journey, including palliative care and bereavement care.

Ultimately, we want to find a cure for this devastating childhood illness.
