Ethan MacMillan Paediatric Cancer Research Fundraiser
A fundraiser in support of paediatric cancer research being undertaken at Auckland University, in memory of Ethan MacMillan.
All funds raised will go directly towards paediatric cancer research being undertaken at Auckland University.
This fundraiser is in memory of Ethan MacMillan who died in December 2014 from complications related to treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. It is our hope that in time, less toxic, gentler treatments will be developed for our children, and that they will cause less long-term side effects for survivors.

Get a head start on some Christmas shopping with our fabulous range of stallholders, there will also be raffles, face painting and a magic show on stage at 12pm. Thanks for your support.
Helen MacMillan's involvement (page creator)
I'm involved in this cause because paediatric cancer research is extremely underfunded globally compared with adult cancer research. Current treatment options for our children need to be improved. My son Ethan died as a direct result of the toxicity of current treatment for paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. He had just turned 8 years old. He wanted and deserved to live a full life, as did the many more children that we know who have died as a result of not only childhood cancers but as a result of the toxicity of current treatment options. Our children deserve better and this is our way of making a difference in the lives of the children who will be afflicted by cancer in the future and their families. It is our wish that no child should have to suffer during cancer treatment as our dear Ethan did.
