About the event
Viktoria and the Yellow Diamond Foundation are getting together to raise funds for brain cancer research. Viktoria's own story with her Grade 4 brain cancer diagnosis in 2022 inspired her to join the foundation. She strives to be a vessel of help in raising funds to support brain cancer research, medicine and medical tools to help fight the terrible disease.
"There is no known cure, there is no known cause and statistically it will affect about 1,600 Australians this year. 1,200 of those affected, sadly will not survive."
Research and equipment doesn’t come cheap, nor does the manpower to administer the research. The funds raised by The Yellow Diamond Foundation will go towards the following, including support for those affected by brain cancer:
