The Scare Cancer campaign raised a massive $140,000 which will be donated by the Kids with Cancer Foundation to fund a clinical trial seeking to cure Paediatric Ependymoma, the third most common form of brain cancer in kids, being undertaken at Sydney Children’s Hospital. Kids with Cancer Foundation’s ependymoma research commitment spans 5 years and totals $1.27 million.
Roughly 60 per cent of children diagnosed with PE are under five years old and sadly one in three children suffer a relapse. Currently no further treatment options.
Hundreds of people across the Hills and Hawkesbury held and participated in Scare Cancer fundraising events.
The Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury, despite just recovering from major floods, held a Scare Cancer high tea; Stanhope Shopping Centre held trick or treat fundraising activities; Cherrybrook Village Shopping Centre held a Scare Cancer Halloween Pumpkin Hunt; NBC Sports Club Northmead held a Scare Caner Halloween Disco and Scavenger Hunt; Cedars Tavern Emerton held Scare Cancer Halloween Karaoke; and Hills Self Storage donated $5 for every move in in October to ScareCancer.
On December 1st one million Christmas lights will be switched on at 45 Grassmere Ave Northmead to shine a light for Kids with Cancer. There will be a bbq on the night run by volunteers from the Kids with Cancer Foundation. The lights will shine every evening until December 31st
