My Room Children’s Cancer Charity has wrapped up Childhood Cancer Awareness month with their 2023 telethon. With the support of Channel 9’s AFL Grand Final Footy Show on Friday 29 September, My Room Children’s Cancer Charity raised $3,121,449 to support sick kids and their families in Victoria. 

The Lott is proud to continue support of My Room for the fifth year in a row, taking total donations to half a million dollars with this year's $100,000 donation, thanks to The Lott by Tatts.

My Room is a Victorian volunteer-run organisation and has been dedicated to increasing the survival rate of childhood cancer for more than 25 years. They have raised an astonishing amount of more than $30 million for research, clinical care, and family support, all to improve the quality of life for children with cancer.

Their goal never changes, working towards a 100% cure rate for children with cancer, which these critical funds help My Room continue to strive towards.

The Lott’s Partnership Manager Liz McPherson is proud to support the incredible work of such an important organisation.

“It’s hard to believe that cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease, but the work My Room does for the community in the children’s cancer space is so vital, and a true testament to their mission, all of their volunteers, and all who donate,” she said. “The Lott by Tatts donation plays a part in allowing My Room to ensure families and children don’t miss out on the specialist support needed. It’s an incredible feeling knowing the positive impact of these funds .”

My Room CEO Margaret Zita OAM beamed with pride, giving her thanks to all those who support their organisation.

“Over the past five years, the amazing partnership between My Room and The Lott has created hope for children battling childhood cancer. The Lott’s unwavering commitment and shared values, means that together we can make a real difference to families who are going through the most challenging journey.” 

“With every dollar donated at this year’s My Room Telethon, it will continue to help us lessen the burden of this journey for families and make the prospect of a cure for all childhood cancers stand even closer than ever before. “
