ZERO CHILDHOOD CANCER BIG ANNOUNCEMENT - MARCH 2023 NEWS
For many years, J Farren-Price has proudly supported the Children’s Cancer Institute and their world leading precision medicine program; the Zero Childhood Cancer Program (ZERO). To date our generous clientele has donated over $2.5 million towards this important cause.
Nothing can be as precious as the life of a child.
Last month, the Children’s Cancer Institute announced some incredible news, which I would like to share with you today. Since the ZERO national clinical trial commenced in 2017, 800 children with high risk and rare cancers have been enrolled across Australia.
In this time, a goal was stated: for all children diagnosed with cancer in Australia to have access to ZERO by the end of 2023. Well, thank you to the incredibly work of the Children’s Cancer Institute, it was announced last month that this goal is already coming to fruition.
'The Zero Childhood Cancer Program (ZERO), Australia’s world leading precision medicine program for children with cancer, will this month begin a progressive expansion to become available to all Australians aged 0 to 18 years with cancer, by the end of the year.'
This marks a monumental moment that is sure to make a huge impact upon the lives of so many Australian children and families. If you would like to read more about this incredible news, visit the announcement article here, or take a look at the ZERO website to learn more about the amazing work that they do.
