August 01, 2017|
In the end of July 2017, Australian Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt presented the Unicorn Foundation co-founder and CEO Simone Leyden with a grant to build the resources for support and education for patients and medical community. The event included a morning tea with NET cancer patients to discuss and recognize the need for greater resources in this area. The grant is for a total of $280,000 over four years.
The Unicorn Foundation plans to use the funds to build on their vital online resources such as webinars, continue the successful patient forums nationwide, continue critical support services, maintain their database system, develop a disease specific patient friendly app that will help develop research priorities, build a network of interested Health Care Professionals and provide educational materials, among other projects.
