The Impact of Fundraising

Research is the single greatest tool we have in the fight against cancer.

At Mater, our clinicians and researchers are constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of modern science and medicine to find pathways toward a cancer-free world.

Mater Research’s long and successful track record in tackling some of the most aggressive cancers is made possible by philanthropic and community fundraising by our supporters.

Mater Researchers work at the cutting-edge of medicine, continuing to identify genetic mutations that underlie disease processes, and better understand how treatments can be personalised to individual patients. Mater clinicians and researchers work with patients to find new ways to diagnose cancer earlier, before it spreads—to constantly improve care and support for people affected by this insidious disease.

At our state-of-the-art cancer care centres, patients benefit from treatment and the full spectrum of support services.

It’s also where selected patients access world-first clinical trials, as part of our commitment to never stop searching for ways to help people with cancer live healthier, longer lives. Research is the single greatest tool we have in the fight against cancer—it’s why we are heavily focused on treating cancer today, while improving diagnostics and treatments for patients into the future.

It is through your support, and others like you, that Mater’s researchers can continue to pedal towards a cure. How will your ride shape the future of cancer treatment and research?
