    Cancer Council funds more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia, dedicated to finding new ways to better detect and treat cancer. In 2017, thanks to the support of our community, we invested over $60 million in cancer research across Australia.

    In South Australia, that meant continuing to fund our Beat Cancer Project in its sixth year, a program which capitalises on partnerships with some of our state’s top universities and institutions to carry out $4 of research for every $1 donated.

    Research is the key to a cancer free  future. Over the past 20 years, we’ve seen some significant steps toward that goal, including:

    • Cancer deaths falling by approximately 14 per cent.
    • Survival rates for many common cancers increase by as much as 30 per cent.
    • An estimated 61,000 Australian lives saved by improvements in cancer prevention, screening and treatment.
