Law Institute Journal Article on Brain Cancer Research Funding

Nicholes Family Lawyers Partner, Nadine Udorovic, has been interviewed by the Law Institute of Victoria’s Law Institute Journal regarding her fundraising work in support of brain cancer research – and her very personal connection to this cause.

Nadine’s father, the highly regarded and much-loved John Udorovic QC, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2005, and sadly passed away at the age of 55 in 2008, almost three years to the day of diagnosis.

Brain cancer kills more people under 40 than any other cancer. The sad fact is the outlook for patients with brain cancer has not improved for over a decade and the only way to change this is through continued research, which requires ongoing funding.
