Brainchild Foundation "Reaching for our Stars" Appeal

Brain Cancer is an insidious disease impacting just over 7 out of every 100,000 Australians.  Sadly, 200 children are diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumour annually, with brain cancer killing more children than any other disease.  Survival rates are low, only 22%, but for people with glioblastoma brain cancers, there is only a 5% chance of surviving five years post-diagnosis.  Furthermore, brain cancer has the highest total burden of disease for adolescents and young adults, costing $1.7million per person (Cure Brain Cancer Foundation 2024).  The St Peters Lutheran College can help support individuals and their families battling this disease.  The BrainChild Foundation provides families with emotional, educational, and financial support through The Better Tomorrows Program, family camps, respite, research, and treatment.  Our goal is to raise $2271, one dollar for every student enrolled at St Peters Lutheran College.  Please help us to provide better tomorrows for kids with brain and spinal cord tumours.
