Childhood Dementia affects an estimated 700,000 people. Every year, around 50,000 babies are born with a condition that causes Childhood Dementia.

In Australia, around 2,300 children are living with Childhood Dementia

This genetic disorder causes a child to progressively lose skills such as the ability to write, read, talk, walk, and play. This can happen over months, years, or decades as their brains slowly deteriorate which eventually leads to the inability to keep the body functioning properly and, eventually, to keep the body alive.

In 2023, it is estimated that 91 children in Australia died due to Childhood Dementia, similar number to childhood cancer.
