As Australia’s leading charity working across every aspect of every cancer, we rely on the generosity of the Australian community to continue our life-saving work.

Through the sale of Cancer Council sun protection product, together we’ve raised over $15 million in the last five years which has helped to fund research, education and patient support.

Here are some of the Cancer Council’s highlights from 2022:



little Aussies protected

across the country from harmful UV rays through our SunSmart school program, reducing their risk of cancer in the future.

invested in research

across Australia along with our research partners, making us the largest non-government funder of research in the country.
