About Bay Audio supporting Cancer Council

This October, Bay Audio is coming together to raise vital funds for Cancer Council as part of the Pink Ribbon campaign to support women affected by cancer.

Every day in Australia, around 50 women are told they have breast or a gynaecological cancer. The five year survival rate for breast cancer increased by 17% from 1982 to 2012, and the five year survival rate for women with a gynaecological cancer increased by 7% in the same period. This increase in survivors of breast and gynaecological cancers is thanks to advancements in research and prevention that you help fund by supporting Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon. 

Breast and gynaecological cancers unfortunately touch everyone’s life in one form or another, either directly or through the experience of family and friends. The money you raise will help Cancer Council fight cancer through prevention programs, support services and world-class cancer research.

About Cancer Council

Cancer Council is the only charity in Australia to work across every area of every cancer, from research to prevention and support. We help people from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and survivorship.

Research
Cancer Councils are the leading independent funders of cancer research in Australia. In 2016, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled more than $65.5 million. Cancer Councils directly funded $43.4 million, with a further $22.1 million contributed by our research funding partners.

Information
We provide evidence-based, up-to-date information about all aspects of cancer to: 
- doctors and other health professionals - to help improve prevention, detection and treatment of cancer
- cancer patients and the general community - more than 50,000 Australians contact the Cancer Councils for information and advice each year, through Cancer Council 13 11 20.

Prevention
Our early detection and prevention programs aim to help people quit smoking, protect themselves from the sun, eat healthier foods and engage in physical activity to reduce the risk of cancer.

Patient support
Cancer Councils coordinate a network of cancer support groups, services and programs to help improve the quality of life of cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers.

Treatment
Our Australia-wide network of health professionals, the Clinical Guidelines Network (CGN) develops guidelines to provide the best evidence based treatment and care for cancer patients. We also work closely with our clinical partner, the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia , to ensure recommendations on cancer care incorporate the advice of experienced cancer specialists across the full range of medical and scientific disciplines.

Advocacy
Cancer Council Australia advises government on the needs of our stakeholders and provides an independent voice for improved cancer control policy based on the evidence.

Cancer Council Australia also publishes the National Cancer Prevention Policy which advocates for a concerted and comprehensive national approach to the prevention of cancer. The policy makes specific recommendations for national action by governments and non-government organisations, including programs and strategies to reduce the incidence of cancer.
