Where we began
The PNET Cancer Foundation was established in 2010 by Kerry Morrison and William Stark, following the loss of their 20 year old son, Kieran to PNET brain cancer. At the time that Kieran was diagnosed, there was no research into PNET brain cancer or support in place for families dealing with this very aggressive and devastating disease.
The Foundation was set up to promote PNET brain cancer research and to positively influence and change the journey for families. The following video tells the story of how we began and our achievements as at November 2016. Since the making of this video, there has been considerable progress in achieving government funding for children’s brain cancer research in Australia. Therefore, the focus of the Foundation going forward will be more towards developing educational resources to support families on the journey.
