Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (ALCCRF)
"Every Child Deserves A Chance At Healthy Life"
Dear Fellow Lions, Lioness, and LEOs,
Thankyou to the Lions of Australia and your communities for the wonderful support of our goal to achieve 100% survival of children diagnosed with cancer. We have provided a variety of opportunities for you to be part of this significant Lions program. You have responded to the call and we thank you sincerely.
The Foundation has been operating for only a few years and we are seeing results. However, sadly, there ARE still in excess of 600 children diagnosed with cancer each year AND approximately 25% will not survive. We have much work to do.
Lions are emerging as a significant player in the fight against childhood cancer in this country. Your Trustees have set a goal of raising $1 million annually to fund the best clinical research into childhood cancer in this country. Australian research is highly regarded worldwide.
ONCE AGAIN LIONS FIND OURSELVES MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO LIVES.
To achieve our goal of a 100% survival rate we need the support of every Lion and every Lions Club. There are many ways you can help including:
- Purchase of ALCCRF awards
- Purchase of the Lions Rose and Lapel Pin
- Participating in the Biggest BBQ
Lions, we have a significant and important challenge before us.
WE CAN DO IT BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
PDG John Thorpe
