AusCan

Team AusCan

Our team has been created to support the  Brain Cancer Collective in Australia and more specifically Alex Lang in his ride for a cure.

In December 2018, Alex found out he had a  brain tumour. He had surgery in January 2019 where the biopsy showed a grade 3 oligodendroglioma.  Fortunately, this is a slow growing sub type of glioma cancer. We are taking part in The Bike Ride for Brain Cancer (a 2 day, 240km ride) to help raising funds for research to find new treatments and better outcomes for children and adults suffering from this devastating disease.  Alex's biopsy along with the work done by the BCBA has mapped out what will be a successful treatment plan that will hopefully give  the BCBA more time to find a cure for him.

Many have already generously donated money, time, accommodation and support to Alex and his wife Donica in this tough part of their journey, however we would be so grateful if you could please help make a difference and donate to our fundraising page.

All donations over $2 will receive a receipt via email. Thank you in advance for your support.

For those interested in more information: the following stats are from the UK, but show how severe brain cancers are and how much more we need to support research;

  • Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40
  • Almost 11,700 people are diagnosed each year with a primary brain tumour, including 500 children and young people – that's 32 people every day
  • Over 5,000 people lose their lives to a brain tumour each year
  • At least 102,000 children and adults are estimated to be living with a brain tumour in the UK currently
  • Brain tumours reduce life expectancy by on average 20 years – the highest of any cancer
  • Just 11% of adults survive for five years after diagnosis
  • Brain tumours are the largest cause of preventable or treatable blindness in children
  • Research offers the only real hope of dramatic improvements in the management and treatment of brain tumours. Over £500m is spent on cancer research in the UK every year, yet less than 3% is spent on brain tumours

Once again, thank you for your support.

Good luck to you and Alex. We understand all too well the madness that the family goes through. Our daughter was diagnosed with an leucocratic astrocytoma in 1997 and after a major brain surgery she not only recovered but continued on to live a great life. We were proud parents at her wedding last year. She still has some burden to carry but faces it with typical Canadian optimism. Lewis & Ellen
