We can’t continue our work without you

It’s hard to believe that one in every two Australians will have cancer in their lifetime. That’s why Cancer Council NSW have decided to take this challenge head on. Every dollar you raise will help us to mobilise action.


It’s all about making positive changes. Our work in breast and cervical cancer research shows us that if you support the right research at the right time, you can make a great difference eg. Between 1997 and 2012 there has been a 20% decrease in risk of dying from cancer. We have invested $136.5m in research over the past 10 years.



Last year an estimated 106,000 Australian men and women were diagnosed with cancer. One in three of these cancers is preventable through maintaining a healthy lifestyle, that’s a whopping 35,000 sufferers who shouldn’t be suffering. With the funds, we can change this statistic and support change in behaviour. We know it works! In the last 10 years, men have lowered their risk of dying from lung cancer by 16%. We can make a great difference!
