A World Without Cancer
Cancer is a tough enemy. But it's even worse when it's one of our loved ones who is facing this terrible disease. We raise vital funds to support the doctors and scientists who have dedicated their lives to uncovering a cure.
Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our supporters - individuals, families, corporate partners and community organisations - we're making a difference.
Since 2007, we've funded 432 cancer projects, including some exceptionally talented scientists and brilliant researchers. The result? We've funded 29 significant cancer breakthroughs in research and care.
We're outsmarting cancer together
Cancer evolution is the single biggest challenge we face in creating better treatment for those affected. Although there have been some incredible advances in the fight against cancer, the disease is constantly evolving and finding new ways to resist the effects of therapy. That's why we're incredibly proud of the projects we've funded and what we've achieved so far. It's spurred us on to achieve even greater things.
For decades, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy have been the three staple treatments against cancer. But clinical trials in recent years have shown that harnessing the body’s immune response—which evolved to fend off harmful bacteria and viruses, among other things—presents a new treatment alternative. It's opened up a whole new frontier in the fight for a cure.
We're incredibly proud that thanks to your support, we've been able to fund 29 significant cancer breakthroughs - including breakthroughs in the area of immunology.
