Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation

District Chair:    Glendell Appleford       Email


Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (LCCRF) vision is 100% survival of kids with cancer.

Today survival rates average 80%. However, 800 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in Australia and we lose on average 3 children each week.

There is much vital research that still needs to be done. Would it be great if one day in the near future we can prevent all kids dying from cancer.

ALCCRF provides funding to childhood cancer research conducted across Australia,specifically targeting improving child survival rates.

*  10 major  research projects funded in 7 years

*  currently co-funding  $ 4 million  Lions Kids Cancer Genome project with the support of Lions Clubs International Foundation

Supermax & Bryce

Our District Governor (2020-21) David Orton wishes our Q 3 club would support this initiavive.

Bryce  initial goal was to raise  enough to give out 804 night lights - one for every single child who was diagnosed with cancer in Australia that year.

Inspired to do more, Bryce's goal for every year moving forward is to not only give a Super Max the Turtle to every child who is diagnosed with cancer in both Australia and New Zealand.

That's 1,000 night lights , but also to raise enough to give every superparent/carer a small gift with stars on it.

It is  Bryce's hope that these stars help to bring light and warmth into what can often be a dark and isolating journey for superhero children and their parents/carers.
