Tax Appeal 2021
Please make a generous gift this tax time, and support life-saving cancer research.
Every day, because of the kindness of people like you, Cancer Council ACT continues to unite the community, provide support and invest in life-saving research — to give cancer patients the best chance of survival.
By making a donation, you are helping children like Rylee, who was only 16 months old when she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She has had every treatment available to her, and not all of them were kind, and she now has partial paralysis.
Then there is Erin, who at 13 weeks pregnant with her second child, was diagnosed and treated for triple negative breast cancer.
For Brendan, he lived for over a year with a lump in his thigh, before he was diagnosed with a soft-tissue carcinoma. Brendon is a husband and father of two, and desperately wanted to be there for his two young sons, Christian and Cruz.
And, there’s Ryan, a volunteer fire fighter and father of two young children who was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma, who said, “If you give to Cancer Council, they actually help real people.”
Sadly, there are too many people who have been affected by cancer in our community, and chances are you have been impacted by cancer in some way too – either directly, or indirectly.
Your support right now is critical.
As the COVID-19 global pandemic took hold, we were forced to make the difficult decision to cancel most of our community fundraising events. So much of our research relies on these events for funding, and without them, vital cancer research and prevention programs are at risk.
Your support today can help ensure that the fallout from COVID-19 does not cost lives.
With your help, more people will enjoy many more special celebrations.
