Cancer Council Queensland is Queensland’s leading non-government cancer organisation that interfaces with the community.

Their research shows that 1 in 2 Queenslanders will be diagnosed with a form of cancer by the age of 85. At Cancer Council Queensland, it’s their mission is to lead Queenslanders in a partnership against cancer. They bring over 60 years of experience conducting high-quality research into all cancers for all Queenslanders. They translate this research into quality care and information services to patients and their families throughout their cancer journey.

They are a not-for-profit entity, working in close alignment with a broad network of education, health philanthropic, industry and community partners. These partnerships are pivotal to the success of their Navigating Cancer Together Strategic Plan 2023-2027.
