The Cancer Care Foundation welcomes Arthur Sinodinus, AO, as a new board member.  

A former Australian Ambassador to the USA and senior politician, he will lend his experience to the Foundation, strengthening its work in researching new cancer treatments and protocols, and in supporting cancer patients. 

“We are fortunate to have such a prestigious Board member who embodies the very ethos of what our Foundation is working to achieve in the service of others,” said Cancer Care Foundation Chair, CEO and Founder Dr Tony Noun. 

“We are very grateful for his support.” 

Arthur Sinodinus held the prestigious position of Chief of Staff to Prime Minister John Howard (1997 to 2007) and, more recently, Ambassador to the USA. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2008. He also has considerable experience in the public and private sector, including roles at Goldman Sachs, JBWere and the National Australia Bank.   

Sinodinus is personally aware of the importance of support and research to help cancer patients, having been diagnosed with cancer and undergone a treatment program in 2017. After his successful treatment, Sinodinus was able to resume his active role in the community.  

In 2019 he received an Honorary Doctor of Letters from the University of Newcastle and was made a Distinguished Fellow of the Australia & New Zealand School of Government. He went on to hold the role of Australia’s Ambassador to the USA from February 2020 to March 2023. 

The Cancer Care Foundation is an Australian registered charity established by doctors and cancer treatment specialists. It has been operating since 2018 and is dedicated to research and providing practical support for patients on the cancer journey in metropolitan and regional areas across New South Wales and Queensland.
