Charlie Teo Foundation
Hope – Community - Openness
I founded the Charlie Teo Foundation because I want to shake-up the way we raise and use funds in brain cancer research.
Brain cancer kills more children in Australia that any other disease, yet the survival rate has increased just 1% over the past 30 years. Compare this with advancements made in other cancers, with survival rates increasing 20% or more. For brain cancer patients and their families these numbers are the difference between hope for the future or complete despair.
We are going to change those numbers, through funding and research and give hope.
Let’s do this together. We are going to get there. A world without brain cancer.

The foundation exists to help people with Neuroendocrine cancer which is rare and difficult to diagnose. Currently there is little or no financial, medical or therapy support for those afflicted.
