Who we are
Research alone cannot cure cancer. But by joining together as one collective force, we truly believe we can make a difference.
A message from our CEO
‘From individual supporters through to sponsors, partners, Board Directors and our Principal Supporter; Can Too, Cure Cancer Australia’s collective team is a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to their support, we are able to continuously fund emerging researchers early in their careers, at a time when ideas burn brightest. Without this crucial funding, many of our grant recipients would have never had the opportunity to explore innovative ideas and go on to make research breakthroughs that have changed countless lives. Together, we can and will cure cancer.’
Floyd Larsen, CEO, Cure Cancer Australia
