Why I am supporting Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

My Story

My 30th bday is coming up! I’ve been asked about presents but I’m lucky enough to have more or less everything I need. I recently started training in Medical Oncology, and see incredible stories unfold constantly: of cure, of relapse, of begrudging acceptance of a slow-growing cancer as an unwelcome housemate. Occasionally, we see healthy bodies – Lawyers, builders, students, musicians, farmers, mothers, sons - rapidly devoured by unexpected malignancy, wasting away in front of our eyes while their families can do nothing but watch. And yet we also seen many people thrive, get back to work, care for their grandchildren; given a second chance against a cancer that was once a sure death sentence. Constant improvements in therapy through research are providing outcomes that were once unthinkable. Reflecting on all of this, donating my birthday to cancer research seemed like a perfect idea. I’d love to commemorate my 30th by helping give others a chance at a few more birthdays too. Thanks everyone for reading and for your support, whatever the amount! It means a lot :) Xoxo Ci

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 Thank you!
