How your support helps people impacted by cancer

Meet Lily

Meet Anna

Anna was diagnosed with an aggressive and rare form of cancer at 29 years old.

Before her diagnosis, Anna says, she and her partner Sian were happily “just doing life”. But their world was shattered by three simple words: ‘you have cancer’.

At the age of 29, Anna was fit and healthy, going for regular 10k runs with Sian. She dabbled in pottery, was renovating her apartment, and was joyfully planning a European holiday.

Her life was interrupted when she began experiencing a pain in her jaw that simply wouldn’t go away.

It turned out to be an aggressive form of cancer called Ewing sarcoma. And a subtype so rare only 90 people have ever been diagnosed with it in that part of the body.

Your support is urgently needed to accelerate cancer research and help save the lives of people like Anna.

Meet Zach

Meet Zach

"When you get told that there's no set treatment or cure for your cancer because there are not enough funds to do research on your particular type of cancer, it's an eye opener."

When Zach was diagnosed with a rare type of head and neck cancer he was told that there was no standard pathway through treatment for him. Unfortunately, his cancer is so rare that research simply hasn't found a proven way to treat it yet.

At Peter Mac, there are researchers determined to discover cures for all cancers, including the very rare ones.

Zach remains hopeful that a cure will be found for his cancer.

The cancer journey is about far more than just receiving treatment.

"I want to be able to make a difference - advance treatment for patients with all cancers."

"The only way we can do better is with research." Dr Alesha Thai’s work is focused on head and neck cancers – but the discoveries and breakthroughs she makes in this field have the potential to translate into all cancer types. Supporters like you are helping Dr Thai investigate a way to improve the likelihood of patients getting the most effective treatment for their cancer type, by testing treatments on their tumour in the lab.
