CHEQUE PRESENTATION TO
PROF ANNA NOWAK OF QEII MEDICAL CENTRE ASBESTOS DISEASES SOCIETY
OF AUSTRALIA WALK FOR RESEARCH AND AWARENESS 2015



On Monday 23 November 2015 the Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia Inc

kicked off Asbestos Awareness Week by presenting the proceeds of the Asbestos

Diseases Society of Australia Walk for Research and Awareness 2015 to Professor

Anna Nowak at the at the QEII Medical Centre. The dedicated ADSA Walkers

and Sponsors raised $85,000 for medical research into a cure for asbestos caused

cancers.

The annual ADSA Walk for Research and Awareness raises lifesaving funds for this

vital medical research. All money raised goes directly to the eminent world leading

medical research team at the QEII Medical Centre.

Professor Anna Nowak said, "As a medical oncologist, I treat a majority of people in

WA with mesothelioma, and I'm heavily involved in a range of research which truly

spans bench to bedside. Where we want to go with all our research is into clinical

trials in patients with mesothelioma, so many of our laboratory questions are

focussed on how we can best take treatments through to the bedside to benefit

people with the disease."

Mr Robert Vojakovic AM, JP, President of the ADSA said, "Our team of dedicated

walkers covered the distance from Albany to Perth taking in the Chester Pass and

Great Southern in just five days. I am very proud of their marvellous efforts to raise

awareness of the dangers of asbestos exposure and their lifesaving fundraising.

As there is no way the circumstances that led to past exposures can be changed it

is essential that a cure is found for these insidious asbestos caused cancers."
