About the Foundation

The creation of the Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was inspired by 9 year old Jennifer Harper, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1977. When her father, Peter Harper, discovered that there was no research into children's leukaemia being done in WA, he set out to raise funds for this purpose.

Together with other parents of children with cancer and with the support of Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, the Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was formed. In 1983 the Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Research Laboratory was established on the children's hospital (PMH) campus and in 1984 Dr Ursula Kees, a Swiss born scientist was recruited from the German Cancer Institute, to head up the Research Laboratory.
