Dialog Box


My 6 year old daughter, Violet was diagnosed with Stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma in November 2015.

After 7 rounds of chemo, hours of surgery to remove the primary tumor (and one of her kidneys), a bone marrow transplant, 20 fractions of radiation and now antibody therapy the cancer is almost gone from her body.

Kids shouldn't have to go through this. Diagnosis should be sooner, treatment easier and kids cured.

We know many children that have come before Violet and the decades of research have increased Violets' chance of survival. I think of the Violets of Tomorrow and think that Children's Cancer Institute can make a difference. That's why I'm fundraising for the Children's Cancer Institute.

To find out the dares I’ll be performing for Dare the Boss please follow the action on the Violets of Tomorrow page Facebook.

About Children's Cancer Institute

Every year more than 950 Australian children and adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer, and every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer. Children’s Cancer Institute exists solely to put a stop to this.

As the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer, our role is vital. Because, despite our progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease.

Our task won’t be easy – childhood cancer is hugely complex – but we’re confident that with the brightest brains, the best facilities and the greatest determination, we will get the job done.

We are curing childhood cancer. It's not if. It's when.
