    Health professionals

    Your gift will help ensure that information and support services are available so health professionals can refer their patients to the most helpful cancer support services.

    People with cancer

    Your loved ones impacted by cancer will be able to turn to 13 11 20 for practical and emotional support, financial and legal assistance, information services and more.

    Regional groups

    You’re making sure no one goes through cancer alone by funding resources, support services and engagement programs for regional and rural communities.

    Carers and families

    Caring for someone with cancer can be overwhelming, but because of your support, carers and families can connect with a nurse who understands.

    Future generations

    With your help, we can create a future where cancer is no longer feared but seen as a preventable and manageable disease.

    Government

    Advance policy and legislation by being a source of expert information and the voice of the community.

    Cancer researchers

    World-class researchers can discover new and better ways to detect, treat and live beyond cancer—and it’s all thanks to you.

    Research

    You’re helping to fund ground-breaking research projects as they discover new and better ways to detect, treat, and survive cancer.

    In South Australia, gifts like yours supported 33 research projects within Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project in 2018. Collaboration between Cancer Council SA, the State Government, SAHMRI and the state universities means that researchers can perform $4 of research from every $1 donated.

    Support

    We’re here for South Australians and their families impacted by cancer, and it’s all thanks to you.

    Cancer impacts every aspect of a person’s life, and their family’s. But you can help to provide support services that ease the burden—like someone to talk to on 13 11 20, information booklets, and practical and financial assistance.

    Prevention

    One in three cancers is preventable through healthy lifestyle habits like quitting smoking, being SunSmart, or exercising regularly.

    Your gift could help deliver life-saving presentations and programs in childcare centres, schools and workplaces to educate and empower everyone to reduce their cancer risk.

    Thanks to generous past gifts, these programs now protect over 113,000 children from harmful UV exposure.

    Advocacy

    Through hard work and strategically focussed advocacy campaigns, Cancer Council SA is proud to have secured a number of significant legislative changes which assist with protecting the health of all South Australians.

    But our work is never done. In an ever-changing political environment, we will continue to advocate for the funding of key programs and legislative changes which protect and support South Australians and help move our community towards a cancer free future.
