Why I am supporting Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

My Story

With the help of my workplace at Echuca College, the students and I are wanting to make a difference and help out-smart cancer. My father died of cancer when I was 15 years old. My mother’s grandmother died of Ovarian Cancer when my grandmother and her sister were young. They died of the same disease. In the 1990's, my mother, her youngest sister and one of my cousins all had breast cancer. In 2014, when my mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, she was contacted by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Clinic. They felt that due to the high incidence of related cancers in her family, she should be genetically tested for the BRCA gene mutation. When her results were positive, her seven children were then advised to have the same genetic test. So far, six of us have been tested and I am the only one to get a negative result. My brother was diagnosed with prostate cancer before the genetic testing was done. All of my sisters have taken drastic steps to reduce their risks of getting these cancers. I am taking part in Cut or colour for ACRF to raise much needed funds for Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me and the Echuca College Community. Together we can help Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) create the world we want to see.

About Cut or colour for ACRF

Baldly go where few have gone before!
Cutting, shaving or even colouring your hair for cancer is a truly noble feat, we’re so happy that you want ACRF to be a part of your journey.

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to outsmart through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital. Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can outsmart cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

If you have any questions, call our fundraising team on 1300 884 988 or email fundraising@acrf.com.au. Thank you!
