Cancer Council is the largest non-government funder of cancer research in the country, and thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we have been able to invest almost $250 million in Australian cancer research in the past 5 years alone.
Investment in research has helped increase cancer survival rates from 49% in the 1980s to 69% today. Because of research, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. And every day, brilliant Australian researchers are working to unlock more of cancer’s secrets.
