September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month!
JOIN US in GOING GOLD to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer!
During the month of September we are showcasing our special little heroes and angels, the reason for our foundation.
You can support our cause by making a Donation or purchasing official Golden Octopus Foundation merchandise from our Store.
Overall there are eight groups of childhood cancer so our logo and the octopus represent the eight arms of childhood cancer.
The Golden Octopus Foundation’s objectives are to improve oncology facilities in all regional areas, including the implementation of childhood cancer nurses, this will alleviate long stays away from families and friends. Wherever possible the foundation will also offer support to families and a long term objective will be to assist families to access trials which may not have been possible previously. We will work closely with other childhood cancer research charities to enable this to happen.
The Golden Octopus Foundation Committee is formed by a group of educated and experienced women who are mothers, relatives or friends of children affected by cancer.
Initially the Golden Octopus Foundation will encompass all areas of Queensland, but as it grows so will its coverage of other states of Australia.
