For most, having a child is the happiest day of your life…unless they’re born with a childhood disease.
Unfortunately, 1 in 20 children is born with a birth defect or genetic disease and cancer is a leading cause of death in children under 14, which is why our number one mission here at Children’s Medical Research Institute is to beat childhood diseases.
We’re extremely proud to have a team of dedicated staff & researchers who continue to ask the difficult questions in order to gain the important answers.
With special thanks to the doctors & midwives at the Westmead Private Hospital who advised, starred in & facilitated the making of this video. We hope to highlight the importance of the research conducted by our scientists, which is then turned into treatments they can use, in order to provide brighter futures for kids all over the world.
