« Our goal is to give children with cancer a healthy future. To do this, we must first understand the disease, in order to be able to fight it. »
"Together against childhood cancer" is a donation platform for people who want to become active for St. Anna Children's Cancer Research Institute (St. Anna Kinderkrebsforschung). On "Together against childhood cancer", individuals, groups, associations or companies can create their own fundraising campaigns for the benefit of children with cancer, carry them out and share them with friends and donors around the world in order to achieve the set donation goal.
St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute (CCRI) strives to improve treatment for children and adolescents with cancer by bringing together translational and clinical research with open-minded exploration of basic disease mechanisms. Every year, 250-300 children and adolescents in Austria alone are diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to research, more than 80 % of these children will now survive. Integrally connected with St. Anna Children’s Hospital, experimental and theoretical scientists at CCRI work side-by-side with oncologists to tackle eminent issues in pediatric cancer research and therapy. The CCRI trains a generation of passionate and courageous researchers thriving on this interdisciplinary exchange and it hosts state-of-the-art experimental facilities to power this mission. CCRI tears down conventional boundaries by constant exchange and collaboration with outside institutions in order to go the extra mile for the benefit of the patient. Bringing research from bench to bedside, CCRI headquarters multiple clinical trials and is tightly integrated in international networks to maximize innovation and impact.
