Words From Associate Professor Ziegler

Dr Z NewThese are words from Associate Professor Ziegler who heads the dedicated, devoted and extraordinary team of researchers that Dainere’s Rainbow work directly with and support.

“I think there is nothing more cruel or unjust in the world than to see a child die at a young age from an incurable disease. It remains a sad and devastating fact that brain tumours, as a group, are the number one disease causing the most deaths in childhood. Every week around Australia, three young children, just like Dainere will die of a brain tumour. This is just not good enough”.

To make a difference and help elevate crucial awareness which is vital to more knowledge, education, support, understanding and funding we would be forever grateful if you would so kindly spread the word through workplace, sporting, educational, family and social media networks about Dainere’s Rainbow, Dainere’s Story and the incredible and tireless work of the research team.

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 childhood brain cancer research at Sydney Children's Hospital

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.
