Changing lives through Project Pink

In support of life-saving breast cancer research, Aveo has reached their $1 million fundraising goal in 2020.

This year more than 3,100 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. By donating to the Project Pink campaign, we are helping to progress A/Prof Fiona Simpson’s life-saving breast cancer research.

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 A/Prof Fiona Simpson and her lab’s ground-breaking research project – a world-first clinical trial for triple negative breast cancer patients.

Thanks to everyone's generous support, phase-one clinical trials are now complete and the research paper published. The path ahead now for the Simpson lab continues to intertwine collaborative innovation with discovery, to improve the outcomes for those faced with breast cancer. Support will ensure we continue our investment into better diagnostics and treatments for breast cancer.

Hear from A/Prof Fiona Simpson

Without Aveo’s support, the PA Research Foundation team would not have been able to complete lifesaving phase-one trails. Future funds will continue to support breast cancer research. We thank you for your generosity during this challenging time.
