An update on Cure Brain Cancer Foundation's events, fundraising, staff and management

While COVID-19 has, and will, have an effect on some of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation’s operations, with your support, we must continue to fund the world's best brain cancer research and help move us all closer to a cure.

Your support is more needed now than ever, so if you were planning on making a donation via one of our postponed events or community fundraising initiatives, please consider donating online at curebraincancer.org.au.

We remain committed to providing solutions, hope, enabling ground-breaking discoveries, and giving the brain cancer community a strong voice.

Unfortunately recent changes in revenue due to COVID-19 have forced the Foundation to reduce staff numbers. We’re currently recruiting a new CEO, but it may take some time before a suitable replacement can be found. In the interim, our CFO, Bruce Whall and Head of Marketing, Communications and Fundraising, Daniel Chapman, will provide leadership and can assist you with any enquiries.

We’re pleased to announce the addition of two new Non-Executive Directors to our Board - Ms Leslie Chong and Mr Danny Rezek.

Ms Chong is currently the MD and CEO of Imugene developing immuno-oncology therapy. She has more than 21 years of experience in leading clinical and department development in cancer therapy.

Ms Chong has therapeutic expertise in all areas of oncology indication but with special focus and dedication to finding a cure for brain cancer. She believes that early development and research in oncology innovations can bring transformative medicine to cancer patients.  

Mr Rezek is a Partner of Deloitte, the former Office Managing Partner of Deloitte Western Sydney, prior to which he led the Motor Industry Services group nationally for Deloitte.

Before joining Deloitte Mr Rezek was the Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Australia. He currently sits on one other not-for-profit board and on the Steering Committee for the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities for Sydney.

Sadly, brain cancer doesn't stop. It kills more Australian kids than any disease and more people under 40 than any cancer. We really need your help to change that.

Our important work is only possible thanks to the generosity and support of people like you.

It takes a team to beat brain cancer, and together we will.

Thank you for your continued generosity and support.
