Funding the best brains to beat brain cancer
Brain cancer is a terrible disease. It kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer. Only 25% of people with brain cancer will survive up to 5 years.
I have been raising funds for brain cancer research for the last 20 years. It absolutely breaks my heart to say that with all that money and all that effort, survival rates for brain cancer patients have barely improved in over 35 years.
As a neurosurgeon I offer surgery to patients from all around the world who have been given no hope. At the Charlie Teo Foundation, we offer hope of a better future for patients and families.
We need to start thinking differently to find a solution.
