National Cancer Foundation is a charitable organisation working to reduce cancer in the community while assisting those already affected by cancer.
Our objectives, as described in our constitution, are:
Our education program is already in place, and expanding. We have teams of advocates in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane, who go door-to-door, offering general information about cancer, its causes and treatments. Their activities also stimulate discussion of cancer, and normalise it to reduce the stigma of talking openly about cancer. We have a telemarketing program, which allows people to interact with us in a more anonymous way, and allows us to contact people outside the capital cities. We are also pleased to have started placing small information stands in shopping centres and high traffic areas in some capital cities, offering information about cancer and the other programs we offer. Of course, our advocates are also happy to accept donations, to help continue our programs.
