Symptoms

If a child is showing symptoms that we have described, this does not mean that they definitely have a brain tumour. These symptoms can have a variety of other causes, which may or may not be serious.

However, any child with symptoms that are unusual for them, or that are persistent or unexplained should be checked as soon as possible by a General Practitioner.

When you visit the doctor, consider showing the doctor this website or taking along the downloadable symptoms chart.

Please remember that any child needing urgent medical help should be taken to the nearest emergency department.

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.
