Rare Cancers Australia (RCA) is a charity whose purpose is to improve awareness, support and treatment of Australians with Rare and Less Common (RLC) cancers. Richard and Kate Vines co-founded RCA in June 2012 and in the ensuing years have established the organisation as a key participant in the broader cancer community.
During this time RCA has published a number of key reports; Just a Little More Time and Rare Solutions: A Time to Act. The reports have successfully highlighted the worrying state of RLC cancers in Australia, actively advocated for policy reform around research and treatment, and have provided much needed support for patients and families.
RCA continues to work with government, clinicians and industry to make certain that these cancers, of which there are over 200, will never be forgotten or ignored again.
