The Lions Cancer Institute held its Annual General Meeting in October 2018 at the Royal Aero Club at Jandakot Airport.
There was quite good representation from Lions Clubs of both Districts, and we were pleased to have as special guests our PhD student, Tracey Seymour, and our new Patron Professor George Yeoh (both pictured) join us.
The business session went well and ,included reports from Chairman Lion Phil Chinnery, Treasurer PDG Neil Saunders, M D Screening Project Liaison Manager PDG Colin Beauchamp and Screening Operations Coordinator Lion John Osborne.
PhD student Tracey provided a presentation on the outcomes of the research she has just completed on finding new therapies to improve treatment of the most common, and fatal type of brain tumour, glioblastoma.
At the completion of the business session, Lion June Walker, a Director and one of our screeners, provided some humour to finish the evening by telling a story about how cold it was at night during a recent screening event at Tambellup. Apparently Colin and John suffered through the early hours on a frosty night, even using towels and every piece of spare clothing they had to try and stay warm. Real “brass monkey” weather!
Thanks to all that attended, and to June and the Jandakot Lakes Lions Club for providing the supper, and the Royal Aero Club for use of the meeting facilities.
