Unite for a cause at the 6th Annual Breakfast for Brain Cancer in Sydney

·

During Brain Cancer Action Month, friends and supporters of the White Pearl Foundation are uniting once again on Friday, May 24, at the 6th Annual Breakfast for Brain Cancer, in support of brain cancer patients.

Attend a brunch on Sydney Harbour and enjoy award winning food by Zest Catering, in the picturesque and serene setting of the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Point Piper.

As in previous years, this fundraising brunch promises to be a truly enjoyable event, featuring inspiring speakers, a raffle with great prizes to be won, and a variety of donated gifts available for purchase at the Breakfast for Brain Cancer Bazaar.

All funds raised will go towards the brain cancer research programme of The Brain Cancer Group.

Brain cancer facts:

  • Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease.
  • Brain cancer kills more people under 40 than any other cancer.
  • Brain cancer is the second biggest cancer killer of females 0–44 years (after breast cancer).
  • Brain cancer has the highest personal and economic burden of any cancer.
  • Brain cancer survival rates have barely increased in the last 30 years.
  • No risk factors for brain cancer have been identified and no screening procedures are available.
  • Effective treatment options for brain cancer patients are limited and tumours develop resistance to standard therapies.
  • The most common malignant brain tumour, high-grade glioma (HGG) is almost 100% fatal.

Yet brain cancer receives less than 5% of Government cancer research funding.

“We are delighted to be hosting this event again this year and bringing our community together to support brain cancer patients,” a spokesperson for the White Pearl Foundation said.

“We invite everyone to join us for what is sure to be a memorable and inspiring event. Our gratitude goes to our Media Sponsor, The Greek Herald (TGH), and we eagerly anticipate collaborating with their team to ensure another successful event. Book your tickets for May 24th, and we’ll see you there!”

If you’re looking for a way to make a positive impact in your community, you are encouraged to gather family and friends and attend, safe in the knowledge that all funds donated from this event to The Brain Cancer Group go directly to brain cancer research.

The fundraising brunch will be held in the Pacific Room of the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Wunulla Road, Point Piper at 10:30am on Friday, May 24th, 2024. Tickets are available now and can be purchased through www.whitepearlfoundation.org. We hope to see you there.

If you cannot attend but would like to make a donation, please follow the donation link on the White Pearl Foundation’s website.
