What do we do

Dainere, in a life too short, a life too fragile, but a life of tremendous influence selflessly, passionately and tirelessly advocated for greater awareness in the community about paediatric brain tumours.
Her determination and passion to raise funds for research and to inspire others with her constant message, “…together we can take action, give hope and create change…” knew no bounds.
Dainere remains an example of making the world a better place she showed such great compassion, love, bravery, positivity, joy and determination. She was grateful for every day she was here.

Dainere And Family

Did you know?

Icon Cancer

Brain tumours are responsible for more childhood deaths in Australia than any other disease.

Icon Diagnose

Each year, on average 1600 people will be diagnosed with brain cancer in Australia.

Info Graphic

Only 2 in every 10 people diagnosed will survive for a minimum of five years.


Treatment is challenging because it affects our most vital organ.


There are no risk factors or lifestyle changes, that we know of, which makes screening unrealistic.

Icon Money

An estimated $50 billion is needed over the next 30 to 50 years to research the causes and outcomes of brain tumours.

Help make a difference

Help us continue raising money and continue to support research into paediatric brain cancer. Every donation goes a long way and no donation is too small, if you are interested in being apart of this mission donate today.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to paediatric brain tumour research at Sydney Children's Hospital
Our Corporate Partners

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation are proud to display the new Registered Charity Tick from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), which aims to gives reassurance to the public that the charities they support are transparent and accountable. We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. Where you see the logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
