    Help find kinder ways to treat kids like Hayley 

    Six-year-old Hayley didn’t understand what the word cancer meant. But when she found out that her aggressive treatment was going to make her hair fall out, she was distraught. 

    You see, Hayley was diagnosed with a rare soft-tissue tumour. Doctors had no choice but to start pumping toxic chemicals into her straight away, in an effort to kill the cancer growing inside of her.  

    But it doesn’t have to be that way.
     
    Researchers are working on ways to kill cancer cells without the debilitating side effects—and you can help. 

    Please make a donation today to fund Cancer Council’s immunotherapy research—finding kinder ways to treat kids with cancer. 

    Little Hayley went through what no child should: four different types of chemotherapy, blood transfusions and a month of radiation. 

    She lost her hair. She woke up with blisters on her skin as the chemicals seeped through her pores. She lost two kilograms in two weeks—10 per cent of her entire body weight. And it was ongoing—112 treatments in her short life.


    Hayley’s dad, Andrew, struggled to watch his little girl go through so much pain. 

    “We’d say, ‘This is to make you feel better honey’.

    But she didn’t understand. How could she? How on earth do you explain to a six-year-old girl that something so horrible is doing them good?” 

    Cancer is cruel enough. No child should be forced to endure painful treatment, too. 

    Please make a generous donation today to spare kids like Hayley from cruel cancer treatment.
