The White Pearl Foundation will hold its fourth annual Breakfast for Brain Cancer event this year on Friday, March 18 at the Royal Motor Yacht Club in Point Piper.
The brunch, which begins at 10.30am, will raise funds in support of the brain cancer research programme of The Brain Cancer Group, Care2Cure (TBCG).
TBCG is focused on improving outcomes for brain cancer patients across the spectrum – from care to finding a cure for this devastating disease. They achieve this by taking a multi-disciplinary approach to delivering meaningful programmes aimed at improving the lives of brain cancer patients.
The founder of the White Pearl Foundation, Suzane Peponis-Brisimis, tells The Greek Herald that “raising awareness of the challenges faced by brain cancer patients, the low survival rates and the need to get behind research is of utmost importance, as are funds for research.”
“All proceeds raised at the brunch will go directly to brain cancer research,” Ms Peponis-Brisimis adds.
“We must advocate for brain cancer patients and their families who face a tough journey, if there is to be any hope of improved brain cancer survival rates.”
On the day of the brunch, patient and TBCG Ambassador, Matthew McCarron, will be the keynote speaker and will share his story about his brain cancer journey, as well as a personal family story.
Associate Professor Michael Back, Radiation Oncologist and Director of TBCG, will also update attendees on how the organisation’s programmes are progressing, with a focus on the ever-expanding TBCG Databank.
Ms Peponis-Brisimis says she’s looking forward to the event and is “very grateful for the strong response we have had to the brunch and to our prize donors for some very generous donations.”
“We sincerely thank all who continue to support the White Pearl Foundation,” she says.
“From our loyal attendees to our guest speaker, our prize donors, our volunteers, our media sponsor, The Greek Herald, and our Communications Sponsor, Orama Communications, and many other donors listed on our website, we couldn’t do it without your help.”
