The Alpha-1 Association of Australia (AAA), was established on 15 June 2005. It is non-profit Health Promotion Charity endorsed as such by the Australian Taxation Office.
The AAA was established following recognition of the absence of a central body of information and contacts for those affected by and working with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1). Alpha-1 is a genetically inherited medical condition which can affect the liver and lungs. The AAA has produced a booklet which contains more detail about the condition. See our Links section also.
Shake It Up Australia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 by Clyde Campbell, a father of three and business owner who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009 at the age of 44. Following his diagnosis, Clyde set out to learn as much as he could about Parkinson’s to determine what he could do in a practical sense to assist. His search led him to the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) for Parkinson’s Research in the United States and the remarkable work they do to fund medical research around the world targeted at finding better treatments on the path to finding a cure for Parkinson’s.
The approach MJFF take to assessing, funding and project managing world’s best research all over the globe eliminates redundancy, ensures efficiency and unites the global community in the quest to find a cure. The Shake It Up Foundation established a partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation and we are now the largest non-government funder of Parkinson’s research across multiple research institutes in Australia. Since we started in 2011 we have invested $3 million into Australian research in our pursuit to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. 100% of all income we raise is directed to funding Australian research which is made possible by our founding director's commitment to cover all administration costs. In addition most Australian research projects we support are funded 50/50 by The Michael J Fox Foundation which means we can double the reach of our funds raised.
We believe in a cancer free future.
Every year in NSW alone, almost 48,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed.
We are Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every area of every cancer.

Cherish Women’s Cancer Foundation’s primary goal is to find and fund clinical research that results in better treatments for gynaecological cancer patients that can be developed and implemented quickly. Our secondary goals include funding research into prevention, early detection and a cure.
If we don’t create ways to fund research into gynaecological cancer, we simply wouldn’t improve survival rates, treatment options, our knowledge about ways to prevent it and ways to detect it earlier. This is because the only way to fund improvements in this area is through fundraising.
Each year in Australia, more than 6000 women are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer and this number is increasing each year. Almost a third will not survive their disease. More than ever before, we need to increase research into quality treatments as this group of cancers is costing Australia $182 million a year, affecting women’s quality of life and having an impact it shouldn’t be having in this day and age.
Funding into research by the Australian Government has been drastically reduced since 2008, from $14 million to $7 million, even though all of the statistics show it is an increasingly prevalent cancer type among women. We cannot continue to wait. The current status quo isn’t good enough. Cherish was established in 2012 to raise crucial funds to support research projects which have the potential to produce real outcomes for those touched by gynaecological cancer.
The Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF) is a Non-Profit, Health Promotion Charity that my wife Kirralee and I began in 2014, after I was diagnosed with brain cancer. We began the Foundation when we realised how underfunded brain cancer was in Australia in comparison to other cancers. The lack of funding meant very little research into treatments or cures for brain cancer and, as a result, not much has changed in the shocking brain cancer mortality rates over the past 30 years.
We had no idea when we started our Foundation and set about raising funds for some much needed research, the incredible amount of support we would receive from people everywhere.To date the Foundation has raised $4.7million in just 4 years, funded a Brain Cancer Biobank, Travel Grants Program, 10 research projects including 2 Fellowships and a Brain Cancer Care Coordinator. Amazing! And all thanks to our supporters and our tireless volunteers.
Ultimately research means better outcomes for brain cancer patients but research is expensive - so we will continue to make it our priority to raise funds and ensure those funds get to where they are needed most. Our Foundation is a very small organisation that runs mostly on the generosity of our supporters and some community grants which allows us to keep the running costs to a bare minimum so that one day, maybe in my lifetime, together, we will find a cure for brain cancer.
Fight Cancer Foundation is a national charity dedicated to giving hope and saving lives by providing care, treatment and support for cancer patients and their families and funding vital research into cancer treatment and cures.

The Children’s Tumour Foundation is the leading non-government not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising money to fund vital research, awareness and practical support for sufferers of Neurofibromatosis (NF); a genetic disorder with no known cure.
A condition affecting 1 in 2,500 people, it causes tumours to grow on nerves throughout the body that can lead to a range of significant health issues, including blindness, cancer, bone abnormalities, deafness, learning difficulties and disfigurement. It is painful, unpredictable and progressive.
Importantly, it can happen to anyone. NF does not discriminate by gender, ethnicity, social-economic status or geographical location and 50% of sufferers have no family history of the condition. Those who do have the gene mutation will also have a 1 in 2 chance of passing it onto their children.
NF is a lifelong condition that requires ongoing monitoring and assessment through several medical specialties. We support those impacted by NF by investing in medical research, providing access to critical support services that help reduce social isolation and improve treatment options, while also educating the community.
Why do we exist? Because tumours should never be a person's normal so we will do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes until a cure can be found.
