It was another incredible effort by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Cyprus Community who raised $3,500 for vital research into prostate cancer through The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF).

THRF appreciates the hard work and dedication the Cyprus Community put into organising the High Tea and raising an incredible amount for research at the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research (BHI).

Funds will be directed to Dr Irene Zinonos who is working to identify life-threatening cases of prostate cancer compared to the cases that require less invasive treatment.

“On behalf of the researchers working on prostate cancer research at the BHI we were honoured to receive this donation at the event the ladies worked so hard in organising. These funds will go directly towards our lab’s research, enabling us to continue our vital research into finding a cure for this heartbreaking disease,” Dr Zinonos said.

THRF is so humbled by the incredible effort community fundraisers put into doing their part to help save lives and improve patient care. We can’t wait to share with you some of the other amazing fundraisers that have been held this year!
