Hope in action

-

AT Cancer Council SA, we see selfless and motivated individual­s who stand together with us as an army to bring the defeat of cancer closer.

This year’s Adelaide Central Relay For Life, held on May 2-3, was an example of “hope in action” and gave hundreds of people the opportunit­y to celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer.

Thanks to your efforts, the Adelaide community had 134 teams participat­e and has already raised over $311,000.

These funds help Cancer Council SA continue to invest in vital research and prevention programs and enable us to support people affected by cancer.

Our nurse counsellor­s speak with more than 7000 callers each year who seek informatio­n and support when calling Cancer Council 13 11 20.

Without the community’s support, Cancer Council SA could not continue to make a difference to people living with cancer. We are proud that our united efforts have resulted in a 30 per cent improvemen­t in survival rates over the past two decades, equating to about 61,000 Australian lives saved.

With advancemen­ts in research and new programs being delivered, communitie­s like Adelaide are making a difference to the 25 South Australian­s diagnosed with cancer every day. Together we are stronger than cancer.
