Our Mission / Objective

Our vision

A cancer free future.

Mission

Every minute, every hour, every day, we’re working towards a cancer free future. 

Cancer never rests, and for that reason, neither do we.  That’s why we’re here for all South Australians affected by cancer every minute, every hour, every day.  And tomorrow, with your help, we’ll start again. 

Cancer Council is the only charity to work across every area of every cancer, from research to prevention and support. We help people from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and survivorship.

Every day, we fund over 200 research initiatives as part of the Beat Cancer Project, exploring new ways to better detect and treat cancer.

Every day, we support families impacted by cancer when they need it most, with practical, emotional and financial support.

Every day, we speak up on your behalf, calling on our government to make positive changes to create cancer free communities.

Every day, we empower you to stay SunSmart, keep healthy, stay vigilant and minimise your cancer risk.

Our Services

Our unique combination of local program delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone to make the biggest possible difference.

Since we first started our work in 1928, we have seen support for people with cancer improve, prevention campaigns work, and five-year survival rates for many common cancers increase to over 68 per cent.

As an independent, non-government organisation, this incredible work is only made possible by the extraordinarily generous support of the South Australian community: our donors, our volunteers and our Ambassadors. To them, we say thank you.

Our Beneficiaries

Today, 27 South Australians will hear the words, “You have cancer”. Many of these people will become survivors, with lives changed forever. But sadly, almost half will lose their lives, leaving behind a never-ending ripple effect on families and friends.

At Cancer Council SA, we know that there is hope―because everyday we’re another step closer to a world without cancer.

Cancer Council SA unites the community, enabling us all to take action―from wearing a hat or making a donation, to encouraging someone to call or volunteer some time.

Every one of us can do something every day.

So, what will you do today to contribute to a cancer free future?

Projects in Progress

Cancer Council SA encourages everyone in the community to show their support by taking part in one of our many fundraising initiatives. You can choose to be a part of:

  • National campaigns like Daffodil Day, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, The March Charge and Girls’ Night In.
  • South Australian events like People’s Choice Undies Run for Bowel Cancer, Relay For Life and Ride for a reason.
  • Community fundraising events, where you choose how you would like to fundraise in your community.

 

The Beat Cancer Project

Working in partnership with SA Health, Flinders University, the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and South Australia’s flagship research facility, SAHMRI, Cancer Council SA has created the Beat Cancer Project, a state-wide initiative intended to support and advance cancer research within South Australia.

It brings together a pool of policy makers, eminent cancer experts and emerging researchers to work collaboratively on research across every type of cancer. Through our innovative collaboration, we can magnify the impact of every dollar donated.

This state-wide model is the only one of its kind in Australia and is currently funding over 50 research initiatives.
