To reduce the impact of cancer in the community by providing accommodation and financial support for cancer patients and their families; improving cancer prevention through education and encouraging early testing to improve treatment effectiveness; to provide funding for research into cancer & cancer related treatments; and to provide meaningful employment for individuals unable to gain a position elsewhere due to age, external obligations, mental or physical disabilities or social issues.
We work throughout the greater Newcastle region, providing information to the public about cancer, ways to reduce your risk of developing cancer, and types of treatment options. We also raise funds for residences located close to major metropolitan hospitals offering cancer treatment, providing a home-away-from-home for the whole family, allowing them to stay together during this trying time, supporting and caring for one another.
We are always looking for people to help with these appeals.
