The Brain Cancer Centre is bringing together our brightest minds to end brain cancer as a terminal illness.

Founded by Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer, established in partnership with WEHI and supported by the Victorian Government, this $40 million investment in research will start tackling this critical mission.

The Brain Cancer Centre will work with researchers and medical teams from organisations across Australia to collaborate and translate their research discoveries into new treatments. We want to make sure every Australian diagnosed with brain cancer will have access to the best treatments and be given real hope for a positive outcome.

None of this would be possible without your generosity and support.

Thanks to every person who bought a beanie, held a fundraiser or donated. Your support means these brilliant researchers can improve outcomes for patients NOW and for future generations. Please know that your money is working hard to find a cure for this devastating disease.

We’ve already committed funding to some highly impactful research projects, leveraging phenomenal talent, infrastructure, experience and collaboration.

We recognise that it will take a huge investment over the long term, to attract the best and brightest minds, to brain cancer research.

This initial investment is just a drop in the ocean for what is needed to find a cure.

We want to see a day where no family has to lose someone they love to brain cancer and I truly believe that together we can achieve that.  

This is just the beginning.
