Research, fundraise, fight
By hosting a Longest Table, you’ll be joining The Hospital Research Foundation and all our partners in the fight for a future free from cancer.
Dr Sarah Boyle, a world-leading researcher from the Centre for Cancer Biology, is fighting cancer in three incredible ways. Not only is she leading the charge in research, but she's also a passionate fundraiser for The Longest Table and has a personal connection to the cause as her family has faced this devastating disease.
As part of The Hospital Research Group family, Dr Boyle knows that everyone can make a difference in the fight against cancer. Join her and register now to host a Longest Table to help raise vital funds and awareness for cancer research.
The Hospital Research Foundation Group fights against disease and illnesses by funding vital medical research and patient care services in the community. We're committed to making a difference in the community.
Nearly one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85 and over 50,000 people lose their life to the disease each year. However, thanks to earlier diagnosis, better treatments and improved care, survival rates are improving.
By hosting a Longest Table, you can join our researchers in the fight against various cancers, incuding:
- Breast cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Bowel (colorectal) cancer
- Brain cancer
- Childhood cancers
- Lung cancer
- Cancer treating equipment
- and much more…
Developing a ‘report card’ which outlines the outcomes of various prostate cancer treatments to help men make informed treatment choices.
Investigating breast cancer cells which become resistant to chemotherapy to bring hope to women fighting hard-to-treat and recurring breast cancers.
Children’s brain cancer
Securing an internationally-renowned children’s brain cancer specialist to lead Australia’s only proton therapy centre for cancer treatment.
Improving cancer survivors’ quality of life by preventing the debilitating side effects of their treatment through more targeted therapies and improved gut health.
You’ll be helping people like jacqui
At only 37 years old, Jacqui experienced the fight of her life when she was diagnosed with aggressive HER-2 breast cancer.
Jacqui endured 16 rounds of chemotherapy, 17 rounds of immunotherapy, 25 rounds of radiotherapy, a mastectomy and will be on hormone blockers for at least the next 10 years.
Despite her heartbreaking battle, Jacqui is grateful to still be here with her young daughter, Evie. Without research, Jacqui knows her story could have ended differently.
“If I was diagnosed 20 years, or even 10 years ago, I might not be here today. I really am lucky.”
