STUDY MAY MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
THE Cancer Council has put out a call for donations to fund a study that will help doctors improve the early detection of cancer. A group of leading researchers in WA have come together to develop a new screening process to identify people most at risk. The council needs to raise $255,000 by June 30. The screening process looks at a person’s genetic history, ethnicity, family history, gender and age to determine their future cancer risk. By identifying people’s risk levels, doctors will have an accurate tool to predict many common cancers, such as bowel cancer. Doctors could target and monitor individuals most at risk of certain cancer types. Researchers believe this project has the potential to change the future of cancer treatment. If you want to donate, call the donor hotline on 1300 65 65 85. They can give you a link to donate online.
