Why giving a major gift matters

We are the only organisation in Australia that works across the entire cancer journey, from prevention, research, information and support and campaigning for policy change.

You can help us achieve our goal to reduce deaths from cancer by 50% over the next 20 years.

I know first-hand that the gift you leave in your will makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients and carers, because of your gift, we have the privilege to support people affected by cancer every day.
