LET’S S/MASH CHILDHOOD DEMENTIA!

Big news! Little Heroes Foundation (LHF) is now a Charity Partner for the 12th World Potato Congress. We are delighted to team up with LHF and we invite you to join us to raise awareness and crucial funds for Childhood Dementia through a series of fun events the weekend prior to the World Potato Congress.

Currently there is no treatment or cure for Childhood Dementia but we are hopeful that more awareness and research will improve survival and quality of life for children across the globe affected by this devastating illness.

World-class research is happening here at Flinders University in South Australia. Little Heroes Foundation aims to contribute to help fund the research required for possible treatments and eventual cures for Childhood Dementia.
