Support Dr Tracy Bryan's Work
Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we have already raised $40,000* toward the purchase of a Typhoon Imager. Please consider donating today, and help us purchase this vital equipment by August.
The Typhoon Imager is a research instrument that is essential for the next phase of Dr Tracy Bryan's ground-breaking work towards new treatments that we expect will be effective against almost all cancers. Tracy and her team are making excellent progress towards this goal and need your help to take the next steps. The new Typhoon Imager will allow Tracy to “see” telomerase, a key cancer component that would not otherwise be visible. Tracy needs this information to move her research forward. In my view, this is one of the most promising and exciting research programs that CMRI has ever undertaken. For example, it has the potential to find a new treatment for the tumour that affected Ella Furney.
When just three years old, Ella was diagnosed with a life-threatening tumour in her liver. This little girl endured over 40 hours of interventional procedures to save her life. Today, Ella still suffers from complications and makes frequent trips to hospital to have her condition monitored. Despite what she has endured, she maintains a happy and positive attitude, and her parents, who are long-time CMRI supporters, have not given up hope that we can eventually cure this devastating disease.
You can help provide real hope for children like Ella and their families. Generous supporters like you have already contributed $40,000 towards the total cost of $185,000 for this vital equipment. With your help, we can raise the additional funds needed to have this equipment in place by the end of August to keep Tracy's world-leading research moving forward.
Please donate by phone on 1800 436 437 or online.
By donating today you can help us develop new treatments for cancer, and create a healthier, brighter future for all children. It's an opportunity to partner with us in a promising research program that will benefit Australian families for generations to come
Thank you again for your support.
