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.
