Cycle Cambodia and help
find a cure for cancer
Flinders Foundation Chief Executive Officer
Amanda Shiell knows all too well how
early cancer detection and intervention can
save a life.
In 2015, Amanda was diagnosed with stage
two invasive melanoma. She is one of the
lucky ones, and it was caught just in time
before it spread to other parts of her body.
Amanda was told if she'd left the moles
any longer – as little as weeks or months –
there might have been nothing the doctors
could have done.
You can give hope to the thousands of
people diagnosed with cancer and help
researchers find more effective ways to
intervene earlier and save lives.
Join Amanda and take part in Cambodia
2018 - Cycle to Cure Cancer to raise funds
for vital research at Flinders Centre for
Innovation in Cancer.
By joining Amanda on the cycle you'll
not only be taking part in an incredible
adventure, but best of all, you’ll be helping
researchers make medical discoveries that
can have a global impact.

Neville fighting for others
Diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015,
Neville Dolling was told he had just two
months to live.
Radiotherapy and experimental drug trials
have given him more time than anticipated,
and he’s recently commenced chemotherapy
to do everything he can to prolong his life –
for one very important reason.
“My first granddaughter is due at the
beginning of July and I want to be around
to meet her,” Neville, who already has two
“I’ve bought so much pink stuff you
wouldn’t believe it – little saucepans and
cooking sets, all in pink.
Neville says he was “absolutely shocked”
when first diagnosed with prostate cancer
as, besides a back ache, he felt fine and
“I know it’s inevitable that (prostate cancer)
will take me – it might be soon, or hopefully,
it might take longer,” he says.
Flinders Foundation is raising funds to
purchase specialised probe equipment
which will help medical specialists in the
Southern Adelaide Local Health Network to
more accurately diagnosis prostate cancer
This is a cause Neville is right behind.
“If my prostate cancer had been caught
earlier, then perhaps I might have had more
treatment options, a better outcome, and
ultimately more time,” he says.
“It’s too late for me but it might not be for
the many men who will come after me.
“The earlier they can catch prostate cancer,
the better the chance of survival.”
Help buy this important equipment so
hundreds of men with suspected prostate
cancer across South Australia each year can
be more accurately diagnosed.
