Childhood Cancer Support is a not-for-profit organisation who, for the past 40 years, has been dedicated to providing families affected by childhood cancer with a
place to live that looks and feels like home. Childhood Cancer Support is a family focused charity, founded by a dedicated group of parents who realised there
was an urgent need to provide a safe and family-focused environment for regional families whilst their child undergoes life-saving cancer treatment in Brisbane.
Childhood Cancer Support primarily supports regional families who find it difficult to access affordable accommodation while their child is undergoing treatment.
The average stay for our families is approximately a demanding and challenging 6-10 months.

Cancer treatment can last for up to several months or, in some cases, years. Childhood Cancer Support’s four residential, self-contained facilities can give your family a home away from home while your child receives treatment.

Even when the long-term treatment is over and your family has returned home, you might need somewhere to stay during your short return trips to Brisbane for check appointments and post-treatment. Situated just around the corner from the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, Childhood Cancer Support provides the perfect short-term solution.

The Stacey Family
“The family style accommodation at Childhood Cancer Support was a saving grace through our journey. Koby was able to live a normal life while not in hospital… it wasn’t until we returned home that we truly appreciated how much Childhood Cancer Support went above and beyond to help our family and others through out this very tough time.”
The Kiely Family
“During one of the hardest times we have had to face as a family, Childhood Cancer Support not only provided us with free accommodation for our entire stay in Brisbane, but also valuable support. What they have created is a community unlike any other for all oncology families.”
The Rethamel Family
“Our unit (TDH4) soon became our 2nd home over the course of the next 9 months. We decorated it with Lucy’s artwork, filled it with special family photos and grew in love with everything about it. It became our sanctuary; our safe haven when Lucy’s neutrophils were low and where we could escape the turmoil of chemotherapy.”
