Every year in Australia, brain cancer kills more kids than any other disease.
Chloe was just five years old when she complained to her parents about back pain.
Everyone assumed it was nothing serious, but her pain persisted.
A few weeks later, little Chloe was diagnosed with brain cancer. This marked the beginning of what can only be described as an earth-shattering nightmare for the entire family.
Over the next four years, Chloe spent a lot of her time in the hospital, undergoing numerous treatments and surgeries. But in late 2017, her oncologist delivered the words that no parent should EVER have to hear:
“I’m sorry, there’s nothing more we can do.”
Chloe took her last breath on Boxing Day 2017. Her family had to make the journey home without her.
We don't want any other families to experience this loss. We are working to drastically improve brain cancer survival rates by investing in new and emerging research so more children have a better chance of survival.
