Where does the money go?

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.


Groundbreaking Cancer research

Nationally, we fund more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia.
Here in SA, Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project has funded more than 200 South Australian
research initiatives across a range of cancers. With your support, we will continue working towards
the next cancer breakthrough.


Cancer prevention education

We know that preventing cancer is one of the most effective ways of creating a cancer free future.
Through your support, we are able to develop programs that encourage and empower people to
lead healthier lifestyles to help reduce their cancer risk.


Supporting people affected by Cancer

We offer a range of support services to all South Australians affected by cancer when they need it
most. Last year alone, we provided information and support to more than 6,400 South Australians
through Cancer Council 13 11 20. Through your support we will be able to offer this vital service for
years to come.
