We are encouraging everyone to MAKE A SUBMISSION to the Senate Select Committee into Funding for Research into Low Survival Cancers.

Brain cancer is the number one cancer killer for people under 40 years and accounts for more than a third of deaths in children under 10 years. Despite this it currently receives less than 5% of Government cancer funding. Many other cancers have now seen significant increases in survival rates due to research, yet the 5 year survival rate for brain cancer is still just 20%.

This is your chance to speak up for the brain cancer community and be heard in Parliament by making a submission via the link below to get Government funding for this terrible disease increased.
