Brendon’s cancer has come back in six places—research is his greatest hope.

It doesn’t get easier, that’s for sure. But knowing I have Cancer Council’s support, and knowing people have been so generous, is very humbling.”- Brendon

Cancer Council SA Appeal research will give Brendon another Christmas

In 2015, Brendon was diagnosed with mixed liposarcoma in his leg, a very rare cancer. He went through successful treatment and was cancer free for over six years.

Then, earlier this year, Brendon was told his cancer had not just returned, but was in his spine, kidney, liver, chest wall, pelvis, and rib bones.

His family is scared this Christmas could be his last.

Brendon is grateful for every second he gets to spend with his wife, Luisa, and two young sons, Christian 13 and Cruz 10. But, without better treatments there is a real risk that Brendon’s time with his family may be cut short.

That’s why your help is needed—to keep people like Brendon, here with their families.

Can we count on your support?

Your generosity will help us invest in more cancer research, to give hope to people like Brendon.

And it will help researchers, like Dr Tessa Gargett, find ways to make treatments like immunotherapy an effective treatment for many more cancers.
