About Us

Our group was established in 2018 by uterine cancer survivor, Phillipa Challis OAM, to operate as the Geelong Region Cancerians, supporting the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.

Phillipa believes raising awareness of its symptoms as well as raising funds for research into new treatments will increase the survival rate for those diagnosed, citing uterine cancer as being the fifth most common cancer diagnosis for women in Australia.
