  1. LIVESTRONG and Lance mean so much to those individuals affected by cancer in Australia and around the World. It is excellent to now see LIVESTRONG being truly “cemented” here in South Australia. Thank You Lance Armstrong and thank you to Premier Rann, Minister Hill and the Flinders Medical Centre Team for making this all possible – LIVESTRONG SA!!

  2. Building a Cancer Research Center is a great thing to do. You are trying to help how to invent a cure for disease and study more about it.

  3. Last week the Fleurieu Cancer Network (FCN) participated in the community consultation for this building.
    We are pleased to see an innovative integrated Cancer Centre being built in South Australia to combine the best of research, clinicians and consumer involvement and care.

    FCN’s mission is to advocate for better services, to increase communication, and to improve information & education and is honoured to be involved in this project and commend all concerned.

    We look forward to a strong and vibrant relationship into the future.

    FCN
