Understanding cancer, changing lives.
Our 2011/12 Annual Report, ‘Understanding cancer, changing lives’, emphasises the important relationship between gaining insight into cancer and the delivery of information and programs that impact the community and our society.
We are committed to transparency in our reporting, providing an integrated overview of our Strategic Priorities, how we work and what we have achieved – not just in this past year, but over time. We also look ahead to those opportunities that will allow us to continue to bring about change to the cancer landscape.
All those who have experienced cancer in some form know what a confronting challenge it is. The challenge of cancer is also confronting for an organisation such as Cancer Council – whose vision is the defeat of cancer. We know that it is simply not sufficient to do things as they have always been done. We set out each year to improve and to do things that make genuine, beneficial change to the lives of people affected by cancer and in the way our society and community respond to the problem of cancer.
