Brain cancer is one of the world’s deadliest cancers
It kills more children and adults under 40 than any other cancer, yet remains one of the most under-researched of all the cancer groups. Unlike most cancers, brain cancer survival rates have not improved significantly over the last 30 years and remain among one of the lowest of all the cancer survival rates.
The Brain Cancer Collective (BCC) raises funds to accelerate brain cancer research in Australia.
To make breakthroughs and find new treatments, scientists need to research and understand what drives these deadly tumours and for that they require access to large amounts of high quality tumour tissue and the associated data. Due to the nature of the disease, these required tissue samples are extremely hard to gather which has severely hampered research efforts in the past.
BCC is focused on raising funds to overcome these problems and building the foundations for more effective brain cancer research.
