Improving the lives of people with cancer

Southern Cancer Care is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to advocating and fundraising for the projects inspired by the cancer care centres within our St George and Sutherland community.

Funded Projects

Southern Cancer Care are pleased to announce their commitment to fund annually a cancer research grant to the amount of $50,000.00. Our research partner, the St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation (SSMRF) Research Committee will manage the process.

In December 2021 Professor Yong Li was the successful recipient of this funding. Professor Li will conduct a new study – Validation of extracellular protein biomarkers in blood for the personalised treatment decision of prostate cancer patients – to help better diagnose and then treat prostate cancer.
