About Cancer Council

 

Our vision is to minimise the threat of cancer through successful prevention, best treatment, support and research.

Cancer Council is the leading cancer charity in Australia, uniting the community, creating hope, providing support and saving lives. We work across every aspect of cancer and rely on the generosity of the community to fund our work and help us achieve our vision of a cancer free future.

 

Every purchase of Cancer Council sun protection products helps to fund our work in the following areas:

 

Research

We fund more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia. In 2017, together with our funding partner, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled almost $60 Million.

 

Prevention

We’ve prevented countless cancer cases and continue to help reduce Australians’ cancer risk by encouraging participation in early detection programs and cancer-smart, healthy lifestyle choices.

 

Advocacy

We regularly call on government to take action on reducing cancer risk and improving access to treatment and care.

 

Support

We offer a number of support services for everyone affected by cancer, and just last year, we helped over 46,000 people via our 13 11 20 information and support line.
