To all Beaconhills College Relay for Life team members – did you ever wonder exactly how Cancer Council Victoria is using your $50,613 of donations this year?
You’ll be pleased to hear that the funds are being put to good use by The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.
The Beacon of Hope team donation will help fund a project led by Dr Gemma Kelly, which is investigating the role of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in certain types of lymphomas. EBV is associated with a number of human cancers, including lymphomas and carcinomas, contributing to 200,000 cancers annually worldwide.
The researchers have found that in one of the cancers, Burkitt Lymphoma, the virus can express a protein called BHRF1. They are now researching how BHRF1 interacts with cellular proteins to keeps cells alive, contributing to cancer growth and chemotherapy resistance.
The long-term goal is to design a drug against BHRF1 that could treat patients with aggressive lymphoma.
The Cancer Council’s Head of Fundraising and Communication, Andrew Buchanan, said the organisation relied on the generosity of the Victorian community to fund cancer research, prevention programs and support services.
“More than half our income comes from donations, bequests and community fundraisers, like Beaconhills College, who generously raise money to support our work,” he said.
