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 2019.

In 2019, 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 the support from Aveo, phase-one clinical trials are nearly complete with only two more patients to undergo the new combination therapy of cetuximab and stemetil.

It has been quite a journey for all the patients in the phase-one trails, but the end is in sight, and once further larger commercial investment is secured, phase-two trials will then roll-out nationwide.

Order your own Project Pink Wines

The 2019 Project Pink wine collection is now available for sale with a percentage of proceeds being donated to Project Pink.

This years collection includes five popular wines, including reds,light whites and an 8 year old Tawny port. Each wine features a label specially designed by our very own Aveo residents and staff.

For every case (12 bottles) purchased, $40.00 will be donated to Project Pink. There are also three beautifully presented gift boxes on offer.

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 had the opportunity.

Total funds raised so far:
2016 $70,000
2017 $324,000
2018 $308,000

Our 2019 target is to raise a further $150,000, with every dollar raised matched by Aveo Group. 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.

Funds raised from Aveo will now go towards the new Metro South Health Breast Cancer Institute which is underway at the PA Hospital Campus.

The vision for the new institute is to be nation leading in this space, which is exciting – they have some fantastic clinicians and researchers involved who are already benefiting from the support of Aveo and will continue to do so moving forward.
