It's hard to believe that one in every two Australians will be affected by cancer by the age 85. That's why Cancer Council would like to invite you to join us to fundraise and tackle this head on. Every dollar you raise will help us to mobilise action.
It's all about making positive changes. Our work in breast and cervical cancer research shows us that if you support the right research at the right time, you can make a great difference.
The fact is 1 in 3 women are diagnosed with cancer by the age 85, compared to 1 in 2 in men. Together we can change this statistic with your help.
Last year an estimated 120,000 Australian men and women were diagnosed with cancer. One in three of these cancers were preventable. With the funds, we can change this statistic and support change in behaviour. We know it works! More than 61,000 Australian lives have been saved by improvements in cancer prevention, screening and treatment over the past 20 years. We can make a great difference!
When cancer sufferers and their carers have nowhere to turn, the Cancer Council has and will always be there to support them with simple things such as transport, health advice and funding to help them get to their next hospital appointment. No cry for help is ever turned down, so support us to support them.To find out more about Cancer Council NSW visit www.cancercouncil.com.au
