Cherish Women’s Cancer Foundation

Cherish Women’s Cancer Foundation is a nationally registered not-for-profit organisation based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Founded by Professor Andreas Obermair in January 2012, Cherish was established to generate funding for research and clinical trials that could be developed and implemented quickly to find kinder ways to treat women with gynaecological cancer.

Every year, Cherish commits funding to these clinical trials and valuable research for the sake of the women we cherish – our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters, wives, fiances and friends. If we didn’t, the 5000 women who are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer each year in Australia are almost forgotten, as societal focus is not on this area of women’s bodies as much as it should.

We thank you for considering supporting Cherish and for looking into what we do, how we do it and how you can help.

Should you have any questions, please contact us.
