About Cancer Council

We’re all in this together



Want to find out more about Cancer Council?

Everyone knows someone affected by cancer. Today, there are more than 1.1 million Australians who are either living with cancer or who have survived a diagnosis. Cancer Council is the leading cancer charity in Australia, uniting the community, creating hope, providing support and saving lives.  Whether it’s helping people today, or being there for those who’ll need us tomorrow, we work across every aspect of cancer and rely on the generosity of community donations to fund our work and help us achieve our vision of a cancer free future.  The money you raise from your morning tea will help fund vital cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy and support services for those affected by cancer.
