Stop breast cancer

Project Pink

Our charity of choice to stop breast cancer

Aveo’s communities and staff work together every year to raise vital funds for Project Pink.
No matter how big or small, your support can help make a difference too.

Changing lives through Project Pink

In support of life-saving breast cancer research, Aveo plans to reach their goal of raising $1 million in 2020.

In 2020, more than 3000 Australian women will lose their battle with breast cancer – that’s eight women a day, making it the second most common cause of female cancer-related death.

Our communities coming together

Residents, staff and partners across our offices and 94 communities have rallied together to raise funds to support UQ Diamantina Institute Group Leader Dr Fiona Simpson and her lab’s ground-breaking research project – a world-first treatment option for triple negative breast cancer patients.

Thanks to your generous support, phase-one clinical trials are now complete and once further larger commercial investment is secured, phase-two trials will then roll-out nationwide.

Funds raised so far

Residents, staff and partners across our offices and 94 communities have rallied together to raise funds since 2016 to support UQ Diamantina Institute Group Leader Dr Fiona Simpson and her lab’s ground-breaking research project – a world-first treatment option for triple negative breast cancer patients.

Over the last 4 years, funds raised have had amazing life-changing impacts with a number of patients who otherwise would not of have had the opportunity.

Total funds raised so far:
2016 $64,088.30
2017 $324,364.54
2018 $308,877.68
2019 $276,883.64

Our 2020 target is to raise a further $25,785.84. If we reach this target, the total funds raised since 2016 will be a staggering $1 million dollars.

Hear from Dr Fiona Simpson

Without Aveo’s support, the PA Research Foundation team would not have been able to complete lifesaving phase-one trails with patients.

Future funds will continue to support breast cancer research projects at the newly opened Breast Cancer Institute based at the PA Hospital Campus.

These national research projects are focused on breast cancer imaging and scanning to establish better diagnostic measures, as well as developing future treatment options for patients at high risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.
