About us

We are Western Australia's leading, independent, evidence-based cancer organisation and the only one fighting every cancer from every angle.

One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We’re determined to change that.

In WA alone, there are almost 12,000 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year; that number is expected to rise. Currently, over 87,000 West Australians living with cancer need our help.

This year, around 4000 West Australians will die from cancer. That is 4000 too many; too many of our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, children, friends and colleagues. But we are making progress. The survival rate for many common cancers has increased by 30 per cent over the past two decades and today, the five year survival rate for some common cancers is over 90 per cent.

There's still a long way to go until we can live in a world where cancer no longer turns people's lives upside down. Through our world-class research funding program, our prevention programs and our vast range of information and support services, we are bringing the defeat of cancer closer.

Every time you make a donation, take part in a Relay For Life event, host an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea or Girl's Night In, buy a Daffodil Day pin or become a regular giver, you join us in this fight and together we will beat cancer.

On behalf of those you are helping, thank you.
