Targeting Cancer

 

Julie has become an Ambassador for Targeting Cancer. She had oropharyngeal cancer treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy in 2013, and is now back to her usual busy life.

Over 100,000 Australians are diagnosed with cancer each year. In 2010, 21,235 cancers were registered in New Zealand. It is estimated that about half of them will benefit from radiation therapy as part of their overall cancer treatment.
