Robyn’s five year battle with cancer ended on Saturday 8 April 2017.
As Coordinator of the SA Brain Bank and Neurological Tumour Bank, Robyn’s desire to find a cure for neurological conditions and brain cancer became a personal one after cancer spread to her brain after first being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012.
Robyn devoted more than 25 years to her role as Coordinator of the SA Brain Bank and Tumour Bank at Flinders, turning it into one of the largest brain banks in Australia and enabling researchers from across Australia to access vital human tissue in their pursuit of cures and better treatments.
Robyn didn’t like being the centre of attention but now it’s our turn to give something back in honour of Robyn. Donate to Flinders Foundation to keep the work of the SA Brain Bank and Neurological Tumour Bank alive.
