Cancer Council SA's programs
You’re helping to fund ground-breaking research projects as they discover new and better ways to detect, treat, and survive cancer.
Gifts like yours has enabled us to collaborate with SAHMRI and the state universities, together with support from State Government through the Department of Health and the Australian Government through the Medical Research Future Fund, to contribute over $18 million towards ground breaking cancer research initiatives in the past nine years.
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 and their family’s life. 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.
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 105,000 children from harmful UV exposure.
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.
