Cure Brain Cancer Foundation has been crowned ‘2016 The Australian Charity of the Year’ at the Australian Business Awards and ranked the 25th most innovative company at the Australian Financial Review Innovation Awards. Both accolades recognise Cure Brain Cancer’s innovative approach towards achieving its bold mission of improving brain cancer survival from the current 20 per cent to 50 per cent by 2023.

Last year, Cure Brain Cancer helped catalyse and announce a revolutionary approach to clinical trials involving the biggest global collaboration in the history of brain cancer research.  Called GBM AGILE, is a faster and cheaper way to test and develop treatments for people with GBM (glioblastoma), one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer.

Cure Brain Cancer also announced significant funding towards Zero Childhood Cancer, one of the most promising personalised childhood cancer research initiatives ever undertaken in Australia, to tackle the most serious cases of infancy, childhood and adolescent cancer, including brain cancer.

“I’m thrilled that these accolades will help to build significant national awareness of brain cancer and in turn help those impacted by this devastating disease,” Matthew Browne, CEO (Acting) at Cure Brain Cancer Foundation said.

“Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer. This is unacceptable.

“Survival rates have barely improved in 30 years so we must do things differently, we must innovate and we must collaborate with the world’s best minds to disrupt the system, improve research outcomes and accelerate brain cancer treatments to patients.

“Progress could not be possible without the unwavering support of our community and supporters who we represent with fierce compassion. Corporates also play a major role in supporting our mission and we encourage likeminded businesses to partner with us to quickly drive better health outcomes for people impacted by brain cancer.”

Cure Brain Cancer Foundation was also named Australia’s most innovative NFP in the Giveeasy 2016 innovation index in April 2016.
