Why should I get involved?
Every dollar you raise helps to fight cancer!
With your support, The Longest Table raises urgently needed funds for cancer research through The Hospital Research Foundation Group to find new ways to prevent, treat and cure this heartbreaking disease.
Cancer is one of our deadliest enemies with 50,000 people losing their life to the disease each year. Frighteningly, one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85.
By hosting a Longest Table, you can help change these alarming statistics and save lives!
You’ll be helping people like Sean…
Sean was diagnosed with prostate cancer just two months before his 50th birthday. Having a seven year old son, this was the last thing he thought he would have to face at such a young age. Sean initially underwent robotic surgery, which appeared to be successful. But it wasn’t enough.
Just six months later Sean required additional treatment so he underwent a course of radiotherapy. Again the cancer slowed, but after another few months it was back again. This led to a course of chemotherapy, combined with hormone therapy. Sean will now be on hormone therapy for the rest of his life.
