Zero Childhood Cancer $67m boost

The innovative and highly successful Zero Childhood Cancer program (ZERO) has this week received $67 million collaborative funding from the Federal government and Minderoo Foundation, to provide all children and adolescents with cancer the greatest chance of survival.

ZERO has changed the way diagnosis and treatment occur for children with the most aggressive cancers or for those with relapsed cancers. New funding committed by the Commonwealth Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt of $54.8million together with $12.2million from Andrew and Nicola Forrest’s Minderoo Foundation will ensure ZERO is expanded, and will eventually be offered to all children diagnosed with cancer by 2023.

Each year, almost 1000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer around Australia, and is unfortunately still the most common cause of death from disease
