Janissen Family & Community
Redcliffe Primary School Pirate Day ?!
We are proud to be able to support and donate $750 to last weeks Pirate Day by The Kids’ Cancer Project at Redcliffe Primary School to raise awareness and much-needed funds for childhood brain cancer.
This means a lot to Janissen’s as Darcey, the son our of Service Coordinator Dayle Parker, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2018.
Darcey has been lucky and the tumor hasn’t come back since which we are very grateful for!
About childhood brain cancer Stats for 2021:
- Brain tumors are the most common form of solid tumors among children.
- More children in Australia die of brain cancer than any other disease.
- As with other tumors in kids and adults, surgery is the primary treatment. After that, surgery is usually followed by radiation treatment and/or chemotherapy.
- Because a child’s brain is still developing, these treatments can result in more substantial and permanent side effects than they would for an adult.
