Our patron the Honorable Kim Beazley AC
(Position accepted 2018)
The Western Australian Governor has traditionally been the Patron of Cancer Council WA.
Mr Beazley is the 33rd Governor of Western Australia, and prior to taking up this role on the 1st May 2018, had dedicated almost three decades to a career in Federal Parliament, representing the WA seats of Brand and Swan.
In 2009, Mr Beazley was awarded the Companion of the Order of Australia for service to the Parliament of Australia through contributions to the development of government policies in relation to defence and international relations, and as an advocate for Indigenous people, and to the community.
We are pleased to have Mr Beazley accept the role of Patron for our organisation, and look forward to working with him in the years ahead to promote our mission of reducing the incidence and impact of cancer on the Western Australian community.
