MAKE A DONATIONContribute to Research Funding
The Brain Cancer Group is a Non for Profit organisation which was founded in 2000 and is administrated by a Board of Directors. Brain cancer in 2014 received only 3% of government funding in comparison to other cancers. TBCG receives no government funding, all funds are donated by the community through fundraising initiatives and donations. 100% of all monies raised through donations go directly into brain tumour research and patient support.
Since 2005, TBCG has treated more than 900 patients with newly diagnosed malignant brain tumours and this number continues to grow.
TBCG has enabled the following through the groups initiatives:
- Ongoing support for patients and their families through education packages providing vital information about brain tumours and patient/career support associations.
- The group has developed a Brain Cancer Support Group.
- TBCG is involved in various research groups and clinical drug trials, radiotherapy and surgical techniques.
- In collaboration with the Kolling Institute of Medical Research, the Group has established the brain tumour tissue bank. The brain tumour samples are collected and exposed to genetic analysis. In January 2012, more than 1100 tumours have been banked.
- TBCG is proud to fund the position of a Neuro-Oncology Cancer Nurse Coordinator. This role provides patients and families with acute and ongoing coordination of care throughout their diagnosis.
