Why Garvan needs your help
The Garvan Research Foundation provides fundraising support to the Institute’s medical research programs.
Your donation helps our scientists find better diagnostics, personalised treatments and ultimately to prevent a range of diseases.
Your support also drives novel projects – the exploratory ideas and breakthrough science which will revolutionise healthcare.
Plus you’ll be contributing to vital technology and know-how. Every dollar goes surprisingly far.
Don't wait until someone you know needs our research
Tennille woke up in the middle of the night with a stabbing pain in her breast. Her GP felt a large lump and sent her off for an urgent biopsy that revealed she had cancer – and it was aggressive.
“It seems that no one is immune from cancer. That’s why research is so vital. To find better, more targeted treatments. Cancer affects everybody some time, somehow … so the research will too.”
Thankfully, the cancer hadn’t spread. But Tennille needed a mastectomy straight away. After two operations she faced six months of chemotherapy and five weeks of radiation therapy.
