Why get involved?
Because you will make a difference and help kids with cancer get 'Back on Track'.
More than 800 children in Australia are diagnosed with cancer each year. Children often require long recovery periods, as a result of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants.
Recovering from a transplant can mean up to two years away from school! Imagine how far behind young people can be in schooling and social development, as a result of treatment.
Fight Cancer's 'Back on Track' program works with the student's school, teachers, peers and medical staff, to enable young Australians fighting cancer to stay connected with their school community, and help avoid the isolation caused by long absences from school.
'Back on Track' gives hope for a brighter future for young Australians with cancer.
"The 'Back on Track' program helped me in so many ways. I'm very thankful to have been involved in this program, as I wanted to do well in school.
Having leukaemia at 13 made me appreciate many things others take for granted. I couldn't believe I actually missed going to school, but I did! Thanks to the Fight Cancer Foundation, I'm now back on track.” Shea, now aged 18
