Daniela’s Story

In April 2021, Daniela was diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain cancer, and just 11 months later, she tragically lost her battle.

Daniela was a beautiful partner, daughter and sister and became our inspiration for establishing The Daniela Dwyer Foundation. Her struggle with brain cancer is our motivation for wanting to make a meaningful change in the diagnosis and treatment of all brain cancer sufferers.

Our Mission

The Daniela Dwyer Foundation, established in 2022, aims to raise funds for brain cancer research and treatment. The goal of this research is to improve diagnosis and treatment options for patients with brain cancer and encourage early intervention to save lives.

About Brain Cancer

Little has changed in the last three decades in the way brain cancer is treated, and consequently mortality rates remain high. We want to change that.

High mortality rate

Brain cancer kills more Australians under 40 than any other cancer. Brain cancer also kills more children than any other disease

Lack of research

Brain cancer survival rates have only increased by 1% in the last 30 years

Lack of funding

Brain cancer receives less than 5% of Federal Government cancer research funding

Daniela Dwyer Fellowship

The Daniela Dwyer Fellowship is funding critical advancements in the early detection and intervention of aggressive brain cancers and helping to make the leap from laboratory testing to real-world application.
