Justin Cameron Cancer Care Foundation – 10th January 2019
January 10 marks an important anniversary at Wesley Medical Research for one of our big supporters. On Thursday evening, we reunited some of the committee to celebrate 27 years of making a difference and supporting research.
The Justin Cameron Cancer Care Foundation was established by Rhonda and Alan Cameron to honour their son, Justin who passed away in 1991 from Ewing’s Sarcoma. Today would have been his 45th birthday and to celebrate, the foundation has committed to funding the BioBank Sarcoma collection at Wesley Medical Research for the next 10 years.
Today, the collection holds 720 human samples (blood and tissue) of sarcoma, a critical resource for researchers in their work to understand the disease.
