In September 2014, our founder Di Mason met with one of Australia’s most experienced oncologists and researchers into melanoma, Professor Grant McArthur, when he visited Launceston. Dr McArthur is Consultant Medical Oncologist, Head of the Translational Research Group and Head of the Molecular Oncology Laboratory at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne. He has worked on the new targeted therapies in the treatment of advanced melanoma and is instrumental in the Melbourne Melanoma Project, which is committed to improving the diagnosis and early detection of melanoma and to offer focused treatments based on the latest research.
A BBQ was held at Pioneers Park in Sorell on Saturday 25th October in order to celebrate the 1 year anniversaries of Ken Harriss’ Kung Fu schools.
The day was a fundraiser for Melanoma Tas and to raise awareness of melanoma in the community.
The day was successful and we thank those who attended and raised an amazing $847.50 towards Melanoma Tas.
