Donate to the Daniela Dwyer Foundation
We are passionate about making a difference, a big difference, but we need your help. Your donation will help to support vital research and brain cancer services which we believe will make the difference to patients and the way that brain cancer is treated.
Phase 1 Goal
Our first phase of fund raising is dedicated to Professor Rao and her research team to conduct a non-invasive clinical trial. With $150,000 of funding, the Lab can establish their liquid biopsy blood test and drug screening platforms, making the leap from testing in the research laboratory to real-world application.
The funding will enable the Lab to begin identifying and recruiting 100 brain cancer patients across Australia, collecting and testing blood over a 12-month period to create a database for their results.
The database will serve as evidence and a reference for oncologists, so that Professor Rao’s blood testing regime can become a standard diagnosis and treatment pathway, and make decision making more agile and patient centered so the liquid biopsy results will positively impact patients.
This funding will employ a nurse, specialised testing equipment and supplies for twelve months. Eventually, we hope that every pathology lab will have this technology in place to service those requests.
Please help us reach our Phase 1 goal.
