As WA’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 state-wide prevention programs, advocating for change and supporting WA 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 support service for all West Australians affected by cancer. 13 11 20 is a confidential cancer information and support phone line run by our experienced Cancer Nurses. It’s available to those affected by or concerned about cancer and works to connect West Australians with relevant support, information and resources.

In the last financial year 8,501 calls were received by our Cancer Nurses via 13 11 20. 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.

As a not-for-profit, non-government organisation we’re reliant on community donations to continue providing this much-needed service for the WA community. By fundraising for us this Dry July you’ll be helping us to continue supporting WA families affected by cancer. We can’t do what we do without you.
