Our Mission / Objective

Our vision is for a world-class Cancer and Wellness Centre dedicated to providing the very best of medical treatment and supportive care for cancer patients and their families. It will include an integrated research facility, to help speed up the process of searching for and implementing new treatments to help stop cancer from spreading and occurring.

A special feature will be the Wellness Centre, offering a full range of supportive programs and complementary therapies, extending the wellness philosophy that will underpin the whole approach of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre.

Projects in Progress

The Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre will be provide a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research. The facilities will build on more than a century of cancer care and expertise at the Austin Hospital.

The Wellness Centre will provide much needed space to further develop some patient centred aspects of care such as relaxation, massage and meditation, as well as providing education and information for patients and their families.

General Donations

The creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre would not have been possible without the generous support of ordinary Australians who contributed $17 million through donations, raffles and events.

But whilst those generous donations have helped build the world-class cancer centre, ongoing funds are needed to enable it to provide wellness therapies, which rely upon community support.

Donations are needed to secure and continue innovative, evidence-based wellness programs.They also help to continually update equipment to ensure the Centre remains at the forefront of cancer research, treatment and care.

You can assist in several ways, by:

  • making a one-off donation, either online or by calling 1800 220 210,
  • joining Olivia’s Circle and pledging a recurring donation,
  • leaving a bequest,
  • giving an in memoriam donation,
  • setting up a tribute fund,
  • holding an fundraising event,
  • asking friends to donate gifts in celebration, rather than giving you a present,
  • buying raffle tickets, or
  • purchasing greeting cards or hampers from the online shop.
