It’s unique. It’s quirky! It’s a marine billboard on a low budget. Captain Pip’s survivorship is making a splash for cancer.

Below you can watch the video about the Survivor-Ship called U-CAN-TRI…

Captain Pip, a director at the Grace Gawler Cancer Solutions Institute, combined his love of sailing & canoeing with the quest to help more patients safely navigate the cancer maze.

Assisted by a team of avid sailors, comprising two doctors (one retired), one engineer, and two boat builders (father & son) from Multi Marine Australia, the project began to take shape.

The team adapted an 18ft paddling canoe into a fast & stable sailing billboard to promote the institute’s message  U-CAN-TRI.  Can you spot the metaphors?

The craft embodies our message to patients…

  • make a worthy plan
  • engage a team of experts
  • be adaptable, creative & innovative
  • and above all, with the right team behind you – know U-CAN-TRI

U-CAN-TRI was launched on Novemebr the 9th at Hollywell Yacht Club on the Gold Coast.

She had already made an appearance at the Fadden Senior’s Expo in July 2015. These were the first of many planned appearances at yacht clubs and other venues throughout Queensland.

The yellow outriggers, carry the URL of our podcast website which feature interviews with leader cancer researchers & inspiring patients.

An added advantage of the radio shows is that it expands our cancer research & practitioner network. Thus we are often able to ‘broker’ viable treatment solutions for patients once told there were no more options.

We assist them via referrals to our podcast networks comprised of some of the brightest minds in cancer medicine.

Thus U-CAN-TRI, our little craft, may help extend the lives of many, many cancer patients.
