About Cancer Council

Cancer Council is Australia’s leading cancer charity working across every aspect of every cancer, ensuring that we can provide vital support to all Australians who are touched by a cancer diagnosis. Every day, Australians hear the words, “You have cancer”, with 1 in 2 people estimated to be diagnosed before their 85th birthday.

This means that too many of us have a cancer story?of someone we’ve lost, a loved one who’s going through their own journey, or of our own personal experience. It also means that everyone has a reason to push for something better, and together we continue to work closer to a cancer free future.

With the support of the Australian community, Cancer Council can be there for families affected by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.

Your fundraising ensures this vital work continues and together, we are reducing the impact of cancer through:

  • Support Services: Cancer Council supports all Australians affected by cancer.
  • Advocacy: Cancer Council works with the community to change laws and policies to reduce cancer risks and improve cancer care.
  • Research: Cancer Council conducts and funds world-class research to reduce the impact of cancer.
  • Prevention: Cancer Council empowers Australians to reduce their cancer risk.

With your help, we’re getting closer to a cancer free future every minute, every hour, every day.
