Why we began

Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund was established in memory of and as a legacy to Dainere in conjunction with The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation to support the research of the devoted Associate Professor David Ziegler and his team who are working towards improving the outcomes for all children diagnosed with brain tumours.

About Dainere

Dainere was the most courageous, selfless and inspiring young person you could ever meet, she worked passionately and tirelessly during her short life to elevate significant awareness and raise vital funds for paediatric brain tumours. Her greatest wish in life was that no children in the future would have to suffer as she did and that one day a cure for this horrendous disease will become a reality.

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.
