Cure Cancer funded Researcher with Fight on the Beaches funds
What is your relationship with 'Fight on the Beaches'? I am a Researcher sponsored by Fight on the Beaches. The Ball last year raised enough funds to support a cancer researcher for a year, and through Cure Cancer Australia, my work was chosen to be funded.
What is your area of research? My research is focused on understanding how cancer cells develop the ability to grow forever compared to normal cells that can only grow for a limited time.
Why cancer research? I have had many family members and friends either survive cancer or succumb to cancer. Anything I can do to understand cancer, with a goal of developing more effective cancer treatments, would be an amazing achievement.
What does Fight on the Beaches' fundraising mean to you? It means I get to continue working on a disease that touches most people at some point in their lives, and hope to make a meaningful contribution to cancer research in my lifetime.
If you could sit with anyone at the Ball, who would it be? I would enjoy sitting with the Fight on the Beaches Founders and organisers of the Ball to hear their stories about why cancer research is so important to them. I think it is important for cancer researchers to have a relationship with the fundraisers - we inspire each other!
Anything else you would like to add? I just want to thank everyone for their generosity - it warms my heart!
If you are unable to attend the Ball, or know someone who would like to do their bit to fight back against cancer, you can make a tax deductible cash donation by making a direct deposit into the Fight on the Beaches bank account.
Bank details are: Account Name: Fight on the Beaches BSB: 062-208 Account Number: 10213598 Bank Name: Commonwealth Bank Tax receipts will be issued by Cure Cancer Australia on a monthly basis.
We need even more fit, energetic people to help us raise as much as we can for Cure Cancer by donating their time on the night as a volunteer. Volunteers are required from 5.30pm till approx 12.30pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with contact details.
