At Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, people with brain cancer are at the core of everything we do.

Thanks to your support, passion and dedication, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation has been able to punch far above its weight, taking brain cancer from a "forgotten cancer" to national health priority.

 

Thanks to your generosity, and the voluntary work of our global scientific advisory committee, we’ve invested $21 million into world-class brain cancer research, including more than $8 million for projects to help children with the disease.

$21M

Invested into world-class brain cancer research.

$8M

Invested into projects to help children with brain cancer.

Our commitment to rapidly increasing survival, improving patients’ quality of life, and ensuring a fairer share of focus and funding for brain cancer, has never been stronger.

Together, we are truly changing the world for people living with brain cancer, both now, and in the future.

Impactful advocacy campaigns with a groundswell of support from the brain cancer community, have led to record levels of investment from the Federal Government. Thanks to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, we now have the Australian Brain Cancer Mission - a $133 million plan to double brain cancer survival in ten years.

Our campaign to get the cancer drug Avastin listed on the PBS for Australians with brain cancer now also means patients and their families no longer need to spend up to $30,000 to access this treatment. Thanks to our campaign, Avastin costs no more than your average script.

We’re a foundational member of the DIPG Collaborative, which is funding groundbreaking research to find a cure for DIPG – the most deadly form of childhood cancer. This investment has led to chemotherapy breakthroughs, potential ways to make radiotherapy more effective against common childhood brain tumours, and new clinical trials for the disease.

Thanks to your generosity, and the voluntary work of our global scientific advisory committee, we’ve funded 53 world-class research projects, and backed Australia’s best scientists and clinicians, and through our Innovation Grants we’re helping our top scientists find new treatments for GBM – one of the most common and deadly forms of brain cancer.

We’re a foundational member of the DIPG Collaborative, which is funding ground-breaking research to find a cure for DIPG – a devastating childhood cancer with a 0% survival rate. This investment has led to chemotherapy breakthroughs, potential ways to make radiotherapy more effective against common childhood brain tumours, and new treatments, which could spare children the need for chemotherapy all together.
