For those Australians with a rare or less common cancer, we owe it to them and their families, to advocate for better prevention, diagnosis and treatment measures. Without this focus, we cannot hope to have an impact on improved patient outcomes. 

But, there is always hope. In memory of those who have lost the battle, let’s work hard to give all patients, just a little more time.

If the person you would like to make a donation in memory of does not appear on the list below, you can donate and leave a message here. Alternatively, if you would like to set up an individual page such as the ones below, please email contact@rarecancers.org.au

Linda Mary Myers

A beautiful soul taken from us too early.

For the past 2 years Linda bravely fought a rare cancer that just would not respond to treatment. Each time it came back she was positive that she would beat it. It wasn’t until a few weeks before it claimed her, that she acknowledged that the cancer has won.
 
Linda has been an inspiration to all of us, always smiling, always positive throughout the whole journey.
