About Cancer Council Victoria
Leading the fight against cancer.
As the majority of our funding comes from the fund-raising work of our volunteers, we rely on the dedication and hard work of many volunteers, including the members of our thirty six regional volunteer groups, including the Geelong Can Do Club.
Working for Victoria; helping people affected by cancer and preventing cancer.
Our work is for the benefit of all Victorians.
This means supporting people with and at high risk of cancer. We also educate children and adults so they know how to reduce their risk of cancer. Wherever possible, we aim to prevent the occurrence of cancer, its spread and avoidance distress associated with it.
Our research contributes to cancer knowledge, so that the burden of cancer will not be as great for future generations.
Victoria's core business is cancer control. We conduct and support research, as well as delivering state-wide support and prevention programs and advocacy to reduce the physical and emotional burden of cancer. Our leaders are of international standing and we are significantly and positively influencing the cancer agenda in Victoria and beyond.
