Organisation Name: Cancer Council Queensland

Organisation Category: Community Service, Health, Welfare

Purpose/Mission Statement: Cancer Council Queensland is the state’s leading anti-cancer organisation. Cancer Council Queensland was established in 1961 as the Queensland Cancer Fund, in response to a desperate need in the community. Cancer mortality was on the increase and available resources could not cope with the problem. A small group of concerned people decided to form the organisation and began planning a strategy for raising funds to combat the disease and provide adequate treatment facilities for cancer patients. Cancer Council Queensland is not government funded and relies solely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to continue its vital work in cancer research, patient support and education. Cancer Council Queensland began as a voluntary organisation and, although it now employs staff, it continues to rely heavily on volunteers and depends on public goodwill and support for its research, programs and services. Volunteers help Cancer Council Queensland to provide many programs, services and support critical to the Queensland community. Volunteers have roles in many areas supporting Cancer Council Queensland in its endeavour to minimise the impact of cancer on the community. Volunteer areas include adult education, administrative support, emotional support to patients, sewing, fundraising and much more. Volunteer participation in these areas is vital to the success of our programs and services. Mission Statement: Medical research has successfully beaten most disease - it will beat cancer. Cancer Council Queensland raises funds which are dedicated to eliminating cancer and diminishing suffering from cancer through Research, Treatment, Patient Care and Prevention and Early Detection.

Services Provided: Cancer Council Queensland raises funds which are dedicated to eliminating cancer and diminishing suffering from cancer through Research, Treatment, Patient Care and Prevention and Early Detection.
