Monaro Committee for Cancer Research

The Monaro Committee for Cancer Research Inc was formed in 1997 at the instigation of Jackie Sellars (Rose) whose young mother, Helen, died in 1996 after a five year battle with cancer. Inspired by her mother’s courage and spirit, Jackie was determined to ‘do something’ to continue the fight against cancer.The Committee is a non-profit organisation, run by Monaro volunteers.

Research funds have been sent to The Department of Cancer Medicine, the Medical Oncology Research Unit at Canberra Hospital and the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.

The major share of monies raised are used through our Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) which provides assistance to families who are facing a cancer diagnoses. FAS offers assistance with household bills, fuel and medical expenses. It will also be used to assist our cancer care nurses caring for patients in the Monaro region.
