Our VisionAbout Cherish
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.
Since 2012, Cherish has committed funding to clinical trials in the areas of ovarian, endometrial, uterine, cervical, vaginal and vulval cancer. We are committed to helping the 6,000 women who are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer every year in Australia by being compassionate, innovative and focused on outcomes.
1 in 23 women will be diagnosed with gynaecological cancer in their lifetime.
