Cancer Council of Australia – As Australia’s peak national non-government cancer control organisation, Cancer Council Australia advises the Australian Government and other bodies on practices and policies to help prevent, detect and treat cancer.  They also advocate for the rights of cancer patients for best treatment and supportive care.

Their Vision is to minimise the threat of cancer to Australians, through successful prevention, best treatment and support.

The Cancer Council Australia’s Mission is to lead a cohesive approach to reduce the impact of cancer.  Cancer Council Australia works with its members in the eight state and territory cancer organisations to:

  • undertake and fund cancer research;
  • prevent and control cancer; and
  • provide information and support for people affected by cancer.
