Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is the largest dedicated fundraiser for brain cancer research in Australia. Established in 2001 by world-renowned neurosurgeon A/Prof Charlie Teo AM, Cure Brain Cancer is funding world class Australian research to find innovative treatments for brain cancer and raising community awareness of this terrible disease nationwide.
Brain cancer has a very high mortality rate, and survival rates have hardly changed for 30 years, despite significant increases in survival for Australians diagnosed with other types of cancer, such as leukaemia and breast cancer. Treatment is challenging because it affects our most vital organ. Brain cancer costs more per patient than any other cancer, yet only receives a small fraction of cancer research funding.
Our mission is to increase 5-year survival to 50% within the next 10 years.
Leaving a gift in your Will is a profound way to support the mission to fight brain cancer. Curing brain cancer will require significant and consistent funding over years. Planning to leave a gift in your Will is one of the best opportunities many Australians will have in their lives to make a major donation to helping to save children, adults and their families from the devastating impact of brain cancer.
