“The reality is, cancer touches the lives of many people. Research is crucial to enhancing patient survival and quality of life, and while progress has been made, there’s still a long way to go. At the Foundation, we are working to accelerate our clinical trials and research program. We want to be at the forefront of research, bringing hope to patients living with cancer now and in the future.”

The Nolan Family

The Nolan family know all too well the devastating impact cancer has on families. In 2014, then-owner, Terry Nolan lost his seven-year battle with renal cell cancer. Terry’s son, Darren, who took over the reins of the family business following Terry’s passing, alongside his brother Adrian (better known by his nickname, Flea), has also battled renal cell cancer.

Both Terry and Darren underwent treatment at Icon Cancer Centre. Terry, who was a research patient on a clinical trial during his treatment, was a generous supporter of the Icon Cancer Foundation. Now, Terry’s family are continuing that legacy.

“As a family, we really wanted to give back to an organisation that has helped us and others. Terry never felt like he was just another number, and everyone at Icon were extremely caring during his cancer treatment,” said Flea Nolan.

“We believe if we can help with funds for Icon Cancer Foundation to continue with their research and clinical trials, it may just help give cancer patients and their families some hope or at least a little bit of extra time to spend together.”
