How You’re Helping

Everyone knows someone affected by cancer.

In fact, nearly one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. The good news is that survival rates are improving, thanks to earlier diagnosis, better treatments and improved care.

By hosting a Longest Table, you’ll help our researchers continue their fight against many different cancers:

  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bowel (colorectal) cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Childhood cancers
  • Leukaemia
  • Lung cancer
  • Cancer treating equipment
  • and much more…

Cancer is one of our deadliest enemies with 50,000 people losing their life to the disease each year. Our researchers are fighting hard to change these alarming statistics, but only with your help!

Your Impact

Professor Clive Prestige, University of South Australia 

Funds raised through your Longest Table helps progress research and patient care projects like:

  • Developing a ‘report card’ which outlines the outcomes of various prostate cancer treatments to help men make informed treatment choices.
  • Investigating breast cancer cells which become resistant to chemotherapy to bring hope to women fighting hard-to-treat and recurring breast cancers.
  • Securing an internationally-renowned children’s brain cancer specialist to lead Australia’s only proton therapy center for cancer treatment.
  • Improving cancer survivors’ quality of life by preventing the debilitating side effects of their treatment through more targeted therapies and improved gut health.
