An origami crane was chosen as the symbol for the Foundation because in Japanese legend it represents; longevity and good fortune. With your help, the Foundation can help make these things possible for people suffering from brain tumours. Click here for instructions to make your own origami crane.
Message from Dr Charlie Teo
"People continue to believe that cancer is a disease that strikes as you get older. I saw 23 patients last week. 20 were diagnosed with malignant brain cancer. Eight of those diagnosed were under 16 years old. We need to change the statistics on brain cancer survivorship. We need significant funds injected now into research to reduce brain cancer related deaths".
"There is no known cure for brain cancer, yet it has the greatest impact on society of all the cancers."
