"The lives of all children in this country should be free from pain and illness, but the reality is too many of our children are suffering every day. Cure Kids aims to turn research into hope for the children and their families who live with illness by improving their quality of life, prolonging their life whilst fulfilling our ultimate goal of finding cures for these illnesses."
Vicki Lee, Cure Kids CEO
At Cure Kids, our purpose is simple. Every single day, we’re driven to find cures for the life-threatening illnesses that affect many of our children.
Approximately one child in 30 is affected by a genetic malformation; that’s an average of roughly one in every classroom. We’re searching for cures for, among others, childhood leukaemia and other cancers, heart diseases, cystic fibrosis, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Type 1 diabetes and asthma. These conditions and diseases mean children often miss out on a normal childhood and have to learn far too early in life how to fight to survive.
