Around 140 golfers attended the annual charity event at Hawks Nest Golf Club, with all proceeds and donations received on the day going to TROG Cancer Research.
TROG Cancer Research, which has its headquarters in Newcastle, is a global leader in the field of cancer clinical trials research to treat many different types of cancer such as prostate, breast, lung, skin, and head and neck.
TROG Cancer Research has been improving the way in which radiation treatment is delivered to cancer patients for almost 30 years.
CEO Joan Torony thanked the Myall Coast Veteran Golfers for their ongoing support.
“We are so grateful for the support of the Myall Coast Veteran Golfers and are so very proud of our long association.”
“We rely on community support to help fund the cancer clinical trials. Clinical trials are the critical step in the research process that leads to breakthroughs and change of practice in the treatment of cancer,” said Ms Torony.
President of the Myall Coast Veteran Golfers, Mr Don Henderson said the event, which includes an auction and raffles, is a highlight on the group’s golfing calendar.
“A number of our members have suffered from different types of cancer at one time or another and we are very pleased to support a local cancer research group.”
