Laurie’s Love Foundation presents brain cancer research, funded by the local community

The community are invited to attend this informative presentation and discussion on an issue that is important to all.

At 6.00 pm this Friday at the Kalamia Hotel, the Burdekin community will be addressed on the latest research projects conducted by the Berghofer Research Institute, in partnership with the Laurie’s Love Foundation.

Two scientists heading up the brain cancer research projects will be travelling from Brisbane to discuss these developments, and show those who donated money to the cause where their contributions have gone and what to expect from future research projects.

The Laurie’s Love Foundation was the legacy of Laurence Pavone, who established this foundation after receiving his brain cancer diagnosis and was determined to make a difference. The local community has driven the success of this foundation with financial donations funding various research institutions and reinforcing Laurie’s message of “infinite love is the cure.”

August 26 was ‘Day For Laurie’ with the Burdekin community, and Burdekin Catholic High School (BCHS) celebrating the life and mission of Laurie.

According to the Australian Brain Cancer Mission, brain cancer is the sixth leading cause of cancer burden in Australia, and the number one cancer for those under 25-years of age.
