As another Australian is diagnosed with melanoma every hour, please donate to help our researchers ensure people like Debbie have a chance to stay with their families.
When Debbie was diagnosed with six inoperable tumours in her brain, she thought she had just months left to say goodbye to her six year old twin daughters, Gemma and Hannah. She imagined that she was about to join the one of the four Australians who lose their lives to melanoma every single day.
But Debbie hadn’t counted on Gamma Knife therapy—a massive recent advance in treatment that enabled the PA Hospital’s specialists to eliminate Debbie’s tumours without surgery, and without damaging healthy tissue.
Treatment breakthroughs like this are made possible by people like you, whose donations towards research are making once untreatable conditions like Debbie’s survivable.
It’s thanks to you that Debbie’s children still have their mum, and with your help to raise a further $102,600 for research today, it will be thanks to you that serious diseases like melanoma will one day no longer take our loved ones from us before their time.
Thank you for donating whatever you can today to help keep your loved ones safe and by your side.
