Hope – Community – Openness

I founded the Charlie Teo Foundation because I want to shake-up the way we raise and use funds in brain cancer research.

Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease, yet the survival rate has increased just 1% over the past 30 years. Compare this with advancements made in other cancers, with survival rates increasing 20% or more.

For brain cancer patients and their families these numbers are the difference between hope for the future or complete despair.

We are going to change those numbers, through funding and research and give hope.

Let’s do this together. We are going to get there. A world without brain cancer.

Back to Basics

In many ways the Charlie Teo Foundation is going back to basics. With the help of an incredibly generous and committed community we have created a very lean organisation. While we intend to fund raise big, the foundation will stay small, with a focus on channeling resources directly to the front line.

Funding the Frontline

Funds will go to clinical trials, our researchers and medical teams working in labs, universities and hospitals across Australia. These are the teams making the breakthroughs and moving us towards a cure.

Australian Focus

While part of a global research community, our goal is to fund local efforts, directing support to some of the best medical science in the world, happening right here in our own backyard.

Hope and Courage

My determination and inspiration comes from my patients, and the parents of my patients. Everyday they teach me extraordinary hope and courage.

Let’s do this together. We are going to get there. A world without brain cancer.

Thank you to our corporate partners and supporters
