Built on love and hope, our foundation strives to provide recognition for families in regional areas while helping them to access oncology trials and facilities previously only available in metropolitan centres.

We have a goal of raising $380,000 for our first full time position of a community based childhood cancer nurse.
This amount will guarantee their wages for three years and ideally cover three regional health service districts.





Triple M Townsville Official Media Sponsor of The Golden Octopus Foundation


The Golden Octopus Foundation's objectives are to improve oncology facilities in all regional areas, including the implementation of childhood cancer nurses. This will alleviate long stays away from families and friends.
Wherever possible the foundation will offer support to families, with our long term objective being to assist families in accessing trials which may not have been possible previously.
We will work closely with other childhood cancer research charities to enable this to happen.
The Golden Octopus Foundation Committee is formed by a group of educated and experienced men and women who are parents, relatives or friends of children affected by cancer.
Initially the Golden Octopus Foundation will encompass all areas of Queensland, but as it grows so will its coverage of other states in Australia.
