Your generous support has delivered vital funds into medical research and patient care to save lives.
In 2018, you enabled us to invest $24 million into lifesaving medical research and patient care in over 40 different areas of disease and illness! This is our biggest impact ever!
You’ve helped improve care and progress research into diseases and illnesses that matter most to you.
Thanks to your support we were able to progress vital research into:
• Identifying a blood hormone that could lead to a new treatment for breast cancer
• Discovering high levels of a certain prostate cancer protein related to a poor outlook for patients
• Trialling Botox as a treatment to improve movement and alleviate pain in stroke patients
• Plus many more lifesaving research outcomes!
For every $1 you donated in 2018, $5 went to lifesaving research and patient care. How? Our administration costs are covered by our commercial business activities (such as our lottery program) which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year.
You can feel proud knowing your support is making an even bigger difference to the health and wellbeing of your loved ones.
