We're fighting hard
We at Hannah's Chance are dedicated to ensuring that every dollar raised by us, or on our behalf, is maximised. In doing so we have made two donations to the ASSG in the last 2 months totalling $187,000.00 and the funds will be used in their entirety for Sarcoma Research.
ASSG Pledge: 100% of donations go to sarcoma research
The Australasian Sarcoma Study Group (ASSG) is a clinical research cooperative group established to improve outcomes for sarcoma and related tumours in the Australian community. The ASSG holds a licence to receive donations in each State and the Australian Capital Territory (there is no licence requirement in the Northern Territory). The ASSG also holds endorsement from the Australian Tax Office as a health promotion charity with deductible gift recipeint status meaning that all donations over $2 are eligible for tax deduction. All gifts and donations are kept in the ASSG sarcoma research gift fund: 100% of donated money is used for sarcoma research.
Following this we have made the decision to wind up our operations as a Charitable Foundation in order to reduce costs which have to be covered by donations. We will maintain the name Hannah's Chance and would ask that all our faithful supporters continue your fundraising efforts and direct any proceeds direct to the ASSG using the following details.
Account Name : ASSG
ACCOUNT : 10408652
REFERENCE : Hannah's Chance
These funds will then be recognised by the ASSG as being raised by Hannah's Chance supporters. The ASSG is also A DGR charitable organisation and will issue receipts accordingly.

What is a Sarcoma?
Sarcoma is a cancer of the connective or supportive tissue, including bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, and soft tissue. More than one thousand people in Australia are diagnosed with sarcoma every year. Sarcomas are given a number of different names, based on the type of tissue from which they arise.
For example, osteosarcoma arises from bone, chondrosarcoma from cartilage, and leiomyosarcoma from smooth muscle. Synovial sarcomas affect soft tissue such as muscles and ligaments MORE →
