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.

Saw Keely tonight in Inside Story. Such an inspirational young lady. I wish her well and hope everyone that saw the story donates and helps her reach her target. Stay strong Keely.
I was touched after seeing your story on Inside Story tonight. As a father of two small children, I dont know how I would handle things if they fell ill. Your positive attitude and commitment to your cause is inspirational.
