We fund the best brains to beat brain cancer
“Let’s do this together. We are going to get there. A world without brain cancer.”
We do this by being pioneers and funding game-changing brain cancer research. Research that uncovers better treatments that will extend the patient’s life expectancy and eventually find a cure.
Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer, yet the survival rate has increased just 1% over the past 30 years. Approximately 1,200 people die in Australia each year from brain cancer. That’s one person every seven hours.
For brain cancer patients and their families these numbers are the difference between hope for the future or complete despair.
We are going to change those numbers by running a low-cost, lean and efficient charity and thinking outside the box to fund game-changing brain cancer research. Based on the above premise, the Charlie Teo Foundation was launched in 2018. The Foundation operates as a low-cost administration model that’s redefining how charities are run.
It is my dream to find a cure for brain cancer.
