Many rural and regional South Australians need to travel to Adelaide for cancer treatment, and travelling so far from home can cause further stress during an already stressful time. Your gift helps make sure no one goes through cancer alone, no matter where in South Australia they live. Every dollar helps by not only allowing us to provide a home-away-from-home lodge accommodation service to travelling South Australians, but by also funding resources, support services and engagement programs for regional and rural communities.

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

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

Your support will advance policy and legislation by enabling Cancer Council SA to be a source of expert information and voice of the community.
