In Memoriam: Gifts in Memory of Melanie Swan

Melanie Swan with her husband Scott, and their daughters Emma and SophieThe research into cancer being conducted at the University of Canberra by Professor Sudha Rao and her team gave Melanie hope for the future.  She was an inspirational and strong advocate of this ground breaking research into the treatment of metastatic breast cancer and was instrumental in raising awareness of the research amongst the Canberra community.

As a founding supporter of the UC Cancer Research Fund, Melanie championed the University of Canberra research not only because it was important to her but also to the future of other cancer patients.  Over the last 15 months, Melanie played a leading role in raising over $50,000 for the UC Cancer Research Fund, which enabled Professor Rao and her team to fast track their research by over six months and develop non-invasive tests to detect cancer stem cells in the blood.

As was Melanie’s wishes, she asked that donations be made in her memory to this fund to continue to support this ground breaking research and provide hope for other cancer patients.

Thank you for remembering Melanie with a gift to the UC Cancer Research Fund.
