CANCER


How your bequest can make a difference for family, friends and the next generation


One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85.


Thanks to advances in early detection and treatment, more than half of those who are diagnosed with cancer will be successfully treated. Yet cancer remains the number one cause of premature death in Australia.


A bequest in your will can make a real difference in the fight against cancer. It can also help those who are diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends and future generations.


Thanks to the generosity of the Australian community, Cancer Council provides more than $70 million a year to cancer research, as well as funds for education and prevention programs and support services assisting thousands of patients and families.


Some of the programs your bequest will support: • Research to discover the causes of cancer and improve treatment.


• Education and awareness campaigns that save lives by teaching Australians about prevention and early detection.


• Services for people with cancer and their families and carers, including support groups, palliative care, accommodation for cancer patients having treatment and financial assistance and resources.


• 13 11 20 – Cancer Council’s free information and support service (around 55,000 Australians call each year).*


• Providing advice to doctors and other health professionals about prevention and best treatment.


*Local call cost anywhere in Australia, excluding mobiles.
