Charlie Teo’s Foundation Cure Brain Cancer (Charlie Teo is a famous Australian Neurosurgeon, by the way) launched a campaign recently to alert people to the fact that Brain Cancer is Australia’s biggest disease related child killer, yet Brain Cancer research only receives a tiny portion of Government research funds – only 3% (hang on, say WHAT??).
I met Charlie Teo and some of the awesome staff from the Foundation last month and am very excited that they have asked me to blog for them regularly as well as get involved on another level (more juicy details on that coming early next year). Meanwhile, they asked if Hana and I would participate in some interviews for the media coverage of this campaign which of course we were happy to do! Here are links to some of the things we have been involved in:

Daily Mail Article
