As part of Southern Cross’ partnership with the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia’s “Build for a Cure” program, some of our head office staff were invited on a tour of the cutting edge facility determined to end childhood cancer. As a touching and poignant reminder of our purpose in partnering with CCIA, as well as the purpose of the Build for a Cure program, we visited the brave kids fighting Australia’s most fatal childhood disease. Our staff were also taken through a range of research areas and state-of-the-art laboratories, where CCIA’s dedicated scientists and researchers hope to finally find a cure and end the suffering of children with cancer. CCIA focus their research efforts on neuroblastoma, one of the most aggressive forms of cancer in children.
The attending group included (from left to right): Anthony Pearce (National Training and Development Manager), Kim Luck (RTO Coordinator), Ian Saggus (Business Development / Project Manager) and Jordan Latham (Business Development Assistant).
