For 40 years, Cancer Council NT has provided essential services to Territorians affected by cancer.

These services help those fighting cancer, and those who are survivors. We also provide support services to many families throughout the Territory, helping them help family and friends fight and survive cancer.

Cancer Council Northern Territory receives 83% of our funding from Fundraising events. This funding goes directly to provide our essential services to cancer patients, through our Nurses and Cancer Support Coordinators, providing one on one support to patients and their families.

Our new $5 for five campaign is fundraising directly for our essential services provided from our Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs Cancer Support Centres. We are asking Territorians to each give $5 dollars to support the five programs that the Cancer Council currently provides cancer patients in the NT.

Cancer touches each of us, and the Cancer Council NT continues to provide valuable support in the community.

2020 is proving to be a challenging year, making our role in our community vital.

We are currently continuing to deliver our services but doing this in an environment where our fundraising income is significantly reduced is incredibly difficult.  Our financial reserves have been hit badly by Covid-19, and we face the very real and terrifying possibility of falling short in the funding we need for these critical cancer services, now and into the future.

It is at this time that we need your support more than ever, so please get involved. Give $5 dollars to any of the five programs that the Cancer Council provides cancer patients across the NT and support us to continue this critical work through these challenging times.  Now more than ever… we need your support. All donations are tax deductible.
