As Australia’s leading cancer charity every day we're working to support families, prevent cancer, and save lives.

From funding life-saving cancer research to delivering prevention programs, advocating for change and supporting Australian families affected by cancer, when they need it the most, every minute, every hour, every day we’re striving towards our vision of cancer free future.

By going dry this July and fundraising on our behalf you’ll be helping us to continue providing our vital 13 11 20 information and support service for all Australians affected by cancer.

13 11 20 is a confidential cancer information and support phone line run by our experienced Cancer Support Professionals, including nurses. It’s available to those affected by or concerned about cancer and works to connect Australians with relevant support, information and resources.

However, our latest estimates show that by 2040 the number of Australians with a personal history of cancer will increase by 72 per cent to 1.9 million. This means in the coming years, our services, like 13 11 20, will be needed more than ever before.

Please help us to continue providing this much-needed service for the Australian community by fundraising for us this Dry July.

Together, we can ensure no Australian has to face cancer alone.

Transport to Treatment in Alice Springs

There are a number of reasons patients have difficulty attending appointments with doctors, for procedures or treatment including:

-inability to use public transport due to weakened immune system

- not holding a drivers licence

- unable to drive due to treatment or medication side effects

- limited family or social support networks

- unable to access public or community transport

- financial hardship that prohibits the use of public transport or taxis.

Thanks to funds received from Dry July Foundation in 2018, a transport to Treatment  vehicle has been purchased to help these patients. Knowing they have a reliable service to get them to and from treatment will certainly make a difficult time, a little easier for those affected by cancer.
