About Cancer Council Australia Cancer Society We are Australia's leading cancer charity and the only charity in Australia dedicated to every aspect of every form of cancer, from research to prevention and support. Our vision is a future without cancer, helping to reduce the physical, emotional and financial burden cancer places on the lives of all Australians. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70, but skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers.
Becoming a SunSmart is a simple and effective way to reduce your skin cancer risk. Through the sale of Cancer Council sunscreens, we've raised over $15 million over the past five years, helping to fund our important work in cancer research, prevention and support. So, thanks to people like you, we are moving towards our vision of a cancer-free future.

prevention Cancer Council AustraliaThe Cancer Society knows at least one third of cancer cases are preventable, so we have programs in place to encourage and empower Australians to lead healthier lifestyles to help reduce cancer risk.
Nationally, cancer councils provide information and support to help Australians reduce their risk of cancer by taking actions we know can help prevent cancer, including quitting smoking, becoming SunSmart, eating well, maintaining a healthy weight, and limiting alcohol intake diet, get physical activity, and get checked by participating in a cancer screening program.
Supporting those affected by cancer is at the heart of everything we do. We know coping with cancer can be challenging, and when you or a loved one is dealing with a cancer diagnosis, traveling for treatment or adjusting to life after cancer treatment, it's critical to have the right information and support.
