Our Mission / Objective

Our mission is to reduce the burden of cancer. Cancer Council Queensland raises funds that are dedicated to improving quality of life for people living with cancer, through research, patient care, prevention and early detection. We value integrity, agility and a deep sense of belonging, as well as a total commitment to supporting the cancer community. 

Our Services

We provide emotional, practical and community support to all Queenslanders affected by cancer. 

We offer confidential information and support services, counselling and peer support services, in addition to practical support such as accommodation lodges and transport services.  

Our Beneficiaries

Our works benefits the entire Queensland community.  Our funds go directly into research and other cancer control measures such as education and support.

Projects in Progress

Research

Investing in cancer research is central to our mission – to reduce the burden of cancer. 

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?

Telehealth Making Sense of Brain Tumour Project 

This collaborative project between Cancer Council Queensland, Griffith University and the Princess Alexandra Hospital aims to find out whether a telehealth psychological support program can improve the mood and quality of life of adults with a brain tumour and their family. Participants will be randomly allocated to receive the telehealth program or standard psychological support from Cancer Council Queensland.

The telehealth program is based on the Making Sense of Brain Tumour program which has been found to be effective for improving people’s emotional well-being and quality of life when delivered in person or face-to-face. 

Our People

Chris McMillan, CEO

Leadership Team

We were established in 1961 as the Queensland Cancer Fund, in response to an increasing need for cancer-related services across the state. This year, we are celebrating 58 years of supporting Queenslanders, affected by cancer.

Today, we employ about 200 employees statewide and have more than 1,300 registered volunteers. Thousands of Queenslanders donate and volunteer for us each day, helping us to improve cancer control. We have nine offices statewide and operate six accommodation lodges providing regional cancer patients with a home-away-from-home when they access lifesaving treatment services in Queensland’s major cities.

We are a member of Cancer Council Australia and work in global affiliation with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
