Nationally, we fund more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia. Here in South Australia, Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project has funded more than 200 South Australian research initiatives across a range of cancers. With your support, we will continue working towards the next cancer breakthrough.
We know that preventing cancer is one of the most effective ways of creating a cancer free future. Through your support, we are able to develop programs that encourage and empower people to lead healthier lifestyles to help reduce their cancer risk.
We offer a range of support services to all South Australians affected by cancer when they need it most. Last year alone, we provided information and support to more than 5,000 South Australian families through Cancer Council 13 11 20. Through your support we will be able to offer this vital service for years to come.
Cancer Council South Australia would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We would also like to pay respect to the elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
All proceeds from The Marilyn Jetty Swim support Cancer Council SA, to support families impacted by cancer, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and fund research to better detect and treat cancer.
