The generosity shown at this event helps our researchers discover the next generation of breakthroughs in the prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer.



“So it has been a life long ambition for our family to try to help in some small way towards in improving bowel cancer outcomes and now the Cancer Council Victoria has given us that opportunity.

While for us this is a great tribute to our mother it is also for all the other families out there in the future. Ongoing and rigorous research in Australia is the only way to ensure that the other families don’t lose loved ones too soon.”

– Lina Caneva

“It’s nights like these that help so much.  Getting together for many laughs and good times. Tonight is about celebration.  It is nights such as this that have helped this man, my dad, to continue to have hope for the future, and with the right help, the right research and the right attitude, there is always hope.  Thanks Tuxedo Junction for the funds raised that, by extension, have helped keep my dad alive these 12 years.”
