Australia launches $100m to beat brain cancer

Australia launches $100m landmark mission to beat brain cancer.

This is fantastic news for brain cancer survivors, their families and carers, as well as those who will be diagnosed with brain cancer in future.

With a survival rate that has barely moved in three decades, it is high time as a nation we made a special effort to combat the cancer which is the number 1 disease killer of Australian children.

As Chair of the Senate Select Committee into Funding for Research into Cancers with Low Survival Rates, a brain cancer survivor, and a long-time advocate for improving brain cancer survival, I welcome this announcement.
