Please donate to help ‘make hope real’ for Australian blood cancer patients.
Snowdome currently has four projects that are in need of urgent funds.
- A circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) study to research a novel way of diagnosing and assessing blood cancers in order to individualise treatments for patients. All funds donated are matched by the Epworth Medical Foundation. Snowdome requires $295,000 pa for this research
- Two research grants in conjunction with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the USA. The grants will aid collaboration with Australian and International researchers to bring additional blood cancer clinical trials to Australia. $130,000 pa is still required for these research grants.
- The Christine and Bruce Wilson Centre for Lymphoma Genomics requires an additional $3million over the next 4 years to extend the genomic testing into myeloid malignancies.
- The Western Australia Lymphoma Centre of Research Excellence requires an additional $400,000 pa to ensure Western Australian blood cancer patients have access to next-generation treatments through international clinical trials in their home state.
