Melanie Swan Movie Night Fundraiser for Ground breaking Breast Cancer Research
Melanie Swan was an inspirational advocate of the University of Canberra and Professor Sudha Rao’s work on metastatic cancer. Her community fundraising efforts helped raise more than $100,000 for cancer research at UC.
In 2015 Melanie organised a movie night fundraiser which saw more than $30,000 contributed to our cancer research projects.
Unfortunately Melanie lost her own battle will cancer in October 2016. She had always intended to run a second movie night and in 2017 Melanie’s friends and family are running the event in her honour and to continue to raise vital funds for cancer research.
The University of Canberra will pay tribute to her on the night by awarding the inaugural University of Canberra - Melanie Swan Cancer Research Fellowship. The Fellowship will provide support to early career researchers working in the area of cancer research.
You can help support this incredibly important and ground-breaking work by attending the movie night fundraiser at Dendy Canberra Centre on Thursday 16 March from 6 pm – 9 pm.
