About Tax Appeal

“If you want to stay with the current situation, where many children have incurable brain tumours or where survivors have serious life-long side effects, then don’t do research.” - Dr. Nick Gottardo 

Nick is a 2017 Cure Cancer Australia grant recipient and he’s doing incredible work. Nick, 46, is a researcher at WA’s Telethon Kids Institute, one of the largest and most successful medical research institutes in Australia with a team of more than 500 staff and students. 

As a grant recipient, Nick is one of 17 early-career cancer researchers Cure Cancer Australia is supporting this year. Many of our researchers, like Nick, have made discoveries and had breakthroughs that are saving lives in Australia and globally. 

Specifically, Nick’s lab focuses on the most common childhood brain cancer - medulloblastoma. Though the survival rate for this variant is now around 70%, the current therapy has significant, life-long toxic consequences.

“It’s not just about survival. It’s about quality of life after survival, and leading a happy productive life with dignity. All too often, unfortunately our treatments can be quite damaging, particularly if we have to use radiotherapy.” – Dr. Nick Gottardo

I hope you’ll join me today in funding cancer research and not your tax bill, by making a tax deductible donation to support research like Nick’s.

While it’s true that incredible progress has been made, we need to continue to fund innovation through early-career researchers, to ensure this is the last generation to die from cancer.  

You’re making an incredible difference. Thank you for continued support and generous donation. 

About Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested close to $30 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
