Today Cancer Council ACT has announced grant funding for two vital cancer research projects being undertaken in Canberra.
Dry July is a fundraiser that encourages Australians to go alcohol-free in July each year to raise funds for people affected by cancer. Each year, over 37,000 Australians give up alcohol, and raise funds for the campaign, helping to fund vital projects for those affected by cancer.
Cancer Council ACT provides vital funding for cancer research through their research project grants each year. With several grants of up to $65,000 each available in 2022, applications are now open for ACT researchers.
With Melanomas being one of the top three diagnosed cancers in the ACT, and top four across Australia, National Skin Cancer Action Week works to remind people about the importance of incorporating sun protection into their daily lives.
