Every dollar makes a difference by supporting Children's Medical Research Institute. Here's how...

$1 - Fight Cancer

A gold coin will buy enough of the crucial enzyme needed to test the blood of one patient for aggressive cancers.

$5 - Treat epilepsy

Buy a badge and CMRI scientists can buy a plastic 96-in-one ‘test tube’ to screen 96 potential epilepsy drugs at once.

$20 - Prevent blindness

Our scientists are developing cutting-edge methods to stop at risk children from going blind. $20 buys next generation DNA sequencing to help us perfect treatments.

$50 - Uncover the causes of rare diseases

$50 helps buy vital laboratory supplies to understand the causes of rare diseases.

$75 - Identify DNA gone wrong

Help us purchase special materials needed to isolate cancer DNA for study, so we can find out what turns a normal cell into a killer.

$200 – Defeat liver disease

This would allow us to prepare a sample of cells needed to develop a treatment for liver disease.

$300 – Make a new discovery

Help our scientists test a new drug that could treat cancer, epilepsy or other neurological conditions.

$500 - Set up a research lab

This could buy all the materials needed to run an experiment that could result in an unexpected discovery.

$1,500 – Help Cure Genetic Disease

This would allow researchers to ‘read’ the full DNA code of a person, helping to spot the one change causing a genetic disease.
