As a citizen of this country I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped to establish and grow St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute over the years and wish them every success in the future.

Dr. Heinz Fischer, President of Austria (ret.)

Curative treatments can only come about as a result of successful research work, such as the work done by St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute. I am delighted to have such a facility, which is held in the greatest respect not only by renowned medical congresses throughout the world, as a part of our city.

Dr. Michael Ludwig, Mayor and Governor of Vienna
