THINGS HAVE CHANGED

But we can still make a difference

We know the combination of bushfires and the pandemic has made 2020 a really difficult year for many in our community. At Children’s Medical Research Institute we’re very aware of how restrictions alter normal life. As we start the road to recovery, we’re reminded that, globally, 12 kids are born every minute with a genetic disease or birth defect whose lives will never return to normal – without treatments and cures.

1800 GENIES (436 437)

around the world, 12 kids are born with a birth defect or a genetic disease

EVERY MINUTE...

Kids just want to be kids, but instead of playing sports with their friends or catching butterflies on a sunny day, these kids are getting liver transplants, taking dozens of medications, or getting their next dose of chemotherapy. It shouldn’t be this way. You can help the scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute find cures, so these kids can go back to being kids.

Making a difference

Every dollar you donate goes directly to Children’s Medical Research Institute and helps find treatments and cures for children’s genetic diseases. We can’t do it without you.

Proven experience

Children’s Medical Research Institute was the first organisation in Australia dedicated to improving children’s health through research, and we’ve led the world for over 60 years.

Giving
hope

1 in 20 Aussie children face a birth defect or genetic disease. Finding treatments and cures can only come from vital research, like that being done in our labs.

THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE

Real kids; real stories

Beautiful Charlize was diagnosed with Propionic Acidemia and has already undergone two liver transplants.

Living with cystic fibrosis means Charlie takes 20 pills, does physiotherapy and uses a nebuliser every day of his life.

Max’s genetic condition is so rare, his parents don’t even know what his lifespan will be. They just hope that research will change that.

Ben’s cancer was so aggressive that he spent 96 nights in hospital, sometimes on chemotherapy for 22 hours at a time.

Briella spent 10 months in hospital to straighten her spine but came out with nothing but a smile and positive attitude.

Any genetic disease is a challenge, but Lachlan lives with multiple conditions that impact every aspect of his life.

Mollyjane’s parents were told she wouldn’t survive a few days, so they celebrate every new day as a major miracle.
