    This Daffodil Day, you could save the life of someone you love. 
     

    Daffodil Day—on Friday 24 August 2018―is the day to donate to Cancer Council SA’s life-saving research projects. Cancer Council SA has funded over 200 research projects that are finding new ways to better detect and treat cancer. By volunteering, donating, or getting your community on board, you’re giving all of these promising projects the momentum they need to make the next discovery. 



    Through every daffodil, and every dollar—you’re helping us get closer to a cancer free future.

  • Where your money goes 


    Researchers are working on projects in South Australia that are getting closer to finding new and better ways to diagnose and treat cancer. 

    Ross McKinnon watched his wife go through painful breast cancer treatment. After she passed away, he was determined to use his research career to help more people in her position, and those in generations to come. 

    Professor McKinnon is working on targeted therapies—specific drugs that only kill cancer cells. It’s a completely different approach to traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy, which kill the good cells along with the bad. And while the results have showed incredible promise, like shrinking advanced-stage tumours by over 90 per cent in just a few months, there’s still a way to go until we understand how to use them to help everyone going through cancer. 

    Listen to Professor McKinnon discuss how his research could change the life of someone you know.
