Over 3,000 Aussie families will sadly lose a loved one to breast cancer this year.
Since the early 90’s, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased significantly, from76% to 92%—meaning fewer and fewer families will lose their loved ones to breast cancer which is incredible. This is the impact of how research can improve early detection methods and provide new treatment options. But there’s more to be done!
Investing in research is our best bet in ensuring everyone can one day survive a breast cancer diagnosis which is why we created Project Pink.
Project Pink is a fundraising initiative of the PA Research Foundation based at the PA Hospital in Brisbane—a world-class hospital and research campus that some of Australia’s most prolific researchers call home. Most notably, the PA Research Foundation awarded seed funding to Professor Ian Frazer to help support his early research, which ultimately led to the discovery of the world's first cancer vaccine, Gardasil.
Every year, thanks to community support of Project Pink, the PA Research Foundation invests in critical research projects to help to improve outcomes for those affected by breast cancer. With your support, we can show everyone affected by breast cancer just how much we care, thankyou. Thank you! 💗
