Children’s Brain Cancer Centre receives $500,000 boost

Tabcorp’s lottery business the Lott is proud to support the vital work of the Children’s Brain Cancer Centre with a $500,000 donation.

The donation, funded by unclaimed prize money, will support life-saving research, which includes innovative new therapies, improving neurological ability in patients, and reprogramming of immune cells to target brain tumours.

The Children’s Brain Cancer Centre, launched last year by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, is the only research centre in the country solely dedicated to improving survival and survivorship for children with this disease.

Children’s Hospital Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Rosie Simpson said the Centre was committed to tackling the deadliest disease for Australian children with a game-changing approach to paediatric research.

“The Children’s Brain Cancer Centre unites the best of the best in paediatric brain research,” she said.

"Our goal is to improve the survival and survivorship for children with brain cancer.”

The Lott General manager Andrew Shepherd said the Children’s Brain Cancer Centre gave children and their families living with the disease a greater chance for a brighter future.

“We have a long history of supporting important health initiatives within our communities and we’re proud to continue that tradition through our donation to the Children’s Brain Cancer Centre," he said.

“This Australian-first centre is bringing new hope to children and their families living with paediatric brain cancer and it’s a privilege to play a part in helping this world-class team of experts continue their vital research.”
