As a Cure Brain Cancer Foundation Ambassador I was honoured to represent them at today’s fabulous Christmas in July lunch – organised by the amazing Teresa Briggs – raising funds for the Foundation. I was very lucky to run into Santa too!
Addressing the event on behalf of the Foundation, I said:
“It’s been over 15 months since Australia first went into lockdown. In that time an estimated 2,515 Australians have been diagnosed with brain cancer. 15 months is the average survival rate for someone with glioblastoma – the most deadly (and common) form of brain cancer.
“Thankfully, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation has continued to provide research outcomes, advocacy and support services. They have also distributed over $1.3 million in research funding, supported new clinical trials, launched an Early Career Fellowship and co-created a support program to enable people with brain cancer to access government services.
“Thank you to everyone who helped organise, attended and raised much-needed funds for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation to continue their vital work.”
