About our Pink Buns campaign
One in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, with the remaining two closely affected by a diagnosis. To help Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) achieve its mission of a world without ALL cancers, Brasserie Bread will again be offering limited edition Pink Buns throughout October and donating $1 to ACRF for every six-pack sold.
Your support of this campaign is helping to back the boldest cancer research ideas – ideas that will help each individual diagnosed with this devastating disease.

Raised so far
Why support ACRF?
We fund research into all types of cancer
Since 1984, we’ve provided over $160 million of funding to innovative cancer research projects that aim to discover new and improved ways to prevent, detect and treat all types of cancer.
We provide large grants that make a real impact
Annually we award grants of between $1 million and $10 million to visionary cancer research projects. We back bold ideas that explore new ways of approaching the challenges attached to treating this complex disease.
We support research across Australia
We provide the brightest researchers in Australia with the technology, equipment and infrastructure needed. We are proud to say that cancer research in Australia is consistently punching above its weight.
Thank you for helping people like Sharon
Sharon was just 34 years old – a determined, hard-working young woman with a thriving business and four young children - when cancer came crashing into her life. She faced gruelling surgery, internal radiation therapy, and a lifetime of medication, but she knew she had to survive for her young son and triplet daughters.
Ever since, Sharon has lived her life in terms of milestones – precious moments in her children’s lives that she is determined to share.
Here are just some past projects brave supporters like you have helped fund:
Cervical Cancer Vaccine
Supporters like you contributed to the seed funding for Professor Ian Frazer’s development of a cervical cancer vaccine. Thanks to a national immunisation program, Australia is set to be the first country to effectively eliminate the disease.
Personalised Cancer Treatment
Donations like yours enabled an ambitious project that aims to provide each cancer patient a personalized treatment plan within 36 hours from diagnosis.
Zero Childhood Cancer
With your contributions, we became one of the founding partners of an initiative to tackle the most difficult cases of infant, childhood and adolescent cancer in Australia. Clinical trials are currently underway nationally and results are looking positive.
