Our Mission / Objective

Our Beneficiaries

All members of the Queensland community as our funds go directly into research and other cancer control measures such as education and support.


Projects in Progress

Research:



Cancer Council Queensland currently invests $10M each year into cancer research – this would not be possible without donations from our supporters.



Currently, gaps in cancer research include:-




  • treatment and management of adolescents and young adults with cancer

  • Understanding why survival rates vary across different areas in Queensland eg. Are individuals less likely to detect or seek treatment for cancer if they live in a rural and remote location?



The Cancer Council Queensland Paediatric Cancer Registry cost $100,000 a year to run. The Registry collects information on every child in Australia who is diagnosed with Cancer. Cancer Council Queensland’s National Paediatric Cancer Registry is one of the few national childhood cancer registers in the world. Benefits include better understanding of childhood cancer, what are the survival rates and how is Australia doing compared to other countries, vital information about childhood cancer for doctors and families that is not available anywhere else, and the ability to track changes in childhood cancer over time to give us clues to the causes.



 



Patient Support:



In September 2011, after many years in planning, Cancer Council Queensland launched the $3 million Marylyn Mayo Lodge for Far North Queensland cancer patients.  Cancer Council Queensland is proud to continue Marylyn Mayo’s lifelong commitment to supporting others and is honoured to be a beneficiary of the Marylyn and John Mayo estate.



The Olive McMahon Lodge the accommodation facility centre will open in Toowoomba in November 2011.  The Lodge will provide a home-away-from-home for regional cancer patients, at no cost, to ensure patients are not financially disadvantaged by having to pay for accommodation during treatment, which often takes them away from their family and work for months at a time.  This lodge was made possible through the generosity of the Olive McMahon estate and we are proud to honour the legacy of Olive McMahon.



Demand is greater than the 17,500 nights of accommodation to 885 patients and carers at our lodges in Brisbane, Townsville and Rockhampton.  Extending on the existing services to provide accommodation support for patients and carers is an ongoing need across Queensland.
