ABOUT CANCER COUNCIL
We believe in a cancer free future. There are things that we can all do every day to help make this happen. Together with our volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and staff, we are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community, and to lessening the burden for people affected by cancer.
Every year in NSW alone, more than 46,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant. 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.
You can help support Cancer Council by registering for 7 Bridges Walk and raising funds with friends and family for a cancer free future.
You can also make a donation on the day. Collectors will be located at each Village asking you to dig deep.
How we put your funds to work:
With your help, here's what we achieved last year.
Thanks to our supporters, we invested almost $60 million in world-class research.
Cancer Council is the leading independent funder of cancer research in Australia, and thousands of Australians are alive today because of cancer research made possible by people like you.
Advocacy and Prevention
Our early detection and prevention programs help people quit smoking, protect themselves from the sun, eat healthier and take part in physical activity to reduce the risk of cancer. Today Australian smoking rates are the lowest they’ve ever been at 13%, and our SunSmart program protects over 2 million kids across the country from overexposure to UV.
We know that sometimes government policies do not reflect available evidence about cancer prevention and access to care and treatment. We bring evidence and people together to help influence changes in policy, funding and legislation.

Our network of pro bono advisors provided over $4,800,000 worth of free legal and financial advice to more than 1,300 people affected by cancer.
