Help us make a lasting difference

Support ground-breaking childhood cancer research.

Lucca Holecliffe was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer in 2016. At the time, Lucca’s parents were told that her cancer was unlikely to respond to traditional chemotherapy and radiation. However, thanks to a ground-breaking research study jointly funded by Child Cancer Foundation, the Precision Paediatric Cancer Project, Lucca got a second chance at life. Find out more.

With your help, Child Cancer Foundation can fund more research to support the ongoing improvement of cancer treatment available to Kiwi children like Lucca.
