This is a charity close to the heart of the VAE team. Starring in the ad campaign is our HSEQ Manager, Joel Bennett, and his family along with two other families, who are impacted by some form of lung disease.
Joel’s son was diagnosed with bronchiectasis, a chronic and debilitating lifelong lung disease that he has been suffering with ever since he was a baby. Whilst there is a possibility that he will grow out of it, so little research is available, hence the need for the Hope Research Fund.
"The Hope Research Fund will be Australia’s leading national long-term commitment to funding life-changing lung disease and lung cancer research. With more money invested into discovering scientific breakthroughs we will bring new hope to millions of Australians impacted by lung disease and lung cancer."
