THE FORGOTTEN CANCERS PROJECT

Funds from Cancer Council’s Emeralds and Ivy Ball in 2015 were raised for  Cancer Council’s Forgotten Cancers Project, a vital research project aimed at improving the understanding of the causes of less common cancers.

 

Over half of all cancer deaths are due to less common cancers. This is despite the five most common types - breast, bowel, prostate, melanoma and lung - accounting for 60 per cent of cancer diagnoses. Unfortunately, many less common cancers have low survival rates. For instance, the five year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only around 1 in 20 - almost unchanged compared to a generation ago.

 

Cancer Council’s Forgotten Cancers Project is building a world-class resource that will help researchers shine a light the causes and risk factors for less common cancers. By collecting lifestyle, genetic and environmental information the project aims to help us understand better ways of preventing and treating these diseases in the future.

 

Taking part is simple, and open to any Australian who has been diagnosed as an adult with a cancer that is not one of the five most common (breast, bowel, lung, melanoma and prostate).

SPONSORS

HEADLINE SPONSOR

Jamie Wilson and Ronan Keating

Cancer Council Australia’s Emeralds & Ivy Ball was proudly supported for in 2014 and 2015 by headline sponsor, Your Digital File.

 

Your Digital File was conceived by entrepreneur Jamie Wilson after his father died unexpectedly from cancer. While grieving, Jamie had the challenge of trying to locate his father's important documents. It quickly became clear that a highly secure central filing solution, which delivered document confidentiality and integrity did not exist.

 

Recognising the potential of technology to deliver a secure online service, Jamie teamed with the world's best software security experts to develop Your Digital File and its advanced patented security technology. Your Digital File provides a solution to escalating cybercrime and the exposure of important business and personal information. Its advanced patented security technology ensures no file is ever compromised or lost. Your Digital File is an easy to use, digital document management solution for the storage, sharing, updating and legal signing of digital documents.

 

Jamie is very passionate about supporting Cancer Council Australia in its fight against cancer after the excellent support that he received during his father's treatment. "Having experienced the terrible impact of a cancer diagnosis on my own family, I'm really proud to be the major sponsor for Cancer Council Australia's Emeralds & Ivy Ball again this year. It’s a cause that's close to my heart and Your Digital File was proud to be a part of last year's event which raised over $400 000 for the Ronan Keating Fellowship".
