Children’s National Hospital has received $96m in funding from an anonymous donor family to advance research and care for rare paediatric brain tumours.

Being one of the largest in the hospital’s history, this donation will enable Children’s National to expand its talent pool and expedite research for safer treatments.

The donation aims to elevate standards of care, improve long-term outcomes, and support children with rare brain tumours throughout their lives.

Brain tumours pose significant challenges in children, given their ongoing brain development and potential for lifelong complications from treatments.

The donor family shares a commitment to children facing difficult diagnoses and will collaborate with Children’s National to enhance leadership in this field.

The investment will drive research breakthroughs and individualised therapies, such as cellular immunotherapy, low-intensity focused ultrasound, neurosurgical innovation, and precision medicine.
