takes all of us.
We’re here for all Australians affected by cancer.
Call 13 11 20 for information and support.
We’re working to reduce the impact of cancer for all Australians.
Almost half of all Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Whilst our cancer outcomes continue to be amongst the best in the world, by working together we can all play a part in reducing the impact of cancer for all Australians.
As Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every aspect of every cancer, we support families affected by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.
Together, with your support, it’s all of us against cancer.
We support all Australians affected by all cancers. Last year, nationally, our 13 11 20 Information and Support Line connected over 36,000 Australians affected by all cancers to services and support when they needed it most.
We conduct and fund world-class research to reduce the impact of cancer. Thanks to the support of our community, and together with our research partners, last year we enabled $51.7 million in research nationally.
We know that we can all make lifestyle changes today, that will increase chances of stopping cancer later in life. We develop programs that empower Australians to reduce their cancer risk.
We're here for you, for life

13 11 20: Supported by Dry July Foundation and you.
We are grateful to the Dry July Foundation for supporting Cancer Council for many years through the Dry July campaign. Since 2019, funds raised through Dry July have gone towards funding our vital 13 11 20 telephone support service where our specialists provide confidential cancer information to more than 37,000 callers across Australia each year. Without support from partners like the Dry July Foundation and our community, we couldn’t run vital services, such as 13 11 20, for people impacted by cancer and their loved ones.
