Background

In Australia each year over 6,000 men and women die of prostate or breast cancer. They are the two most common invasive cancers, and fortunately the most survivable. The Prostate & Breast Cancer Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for patients for all types of cancer. Our programs include:

  • Research at St George Clinical School – investigation of chemo and radio resistance, biomarkers and targeted treatments
  • Publications and information services – community stalls and events

Mission: To improve the quality of life for cancer patients with priority to those:

  • Socially or geographically isolated;
  • Economically disadvantaged & unable to afford care; and
  • Culturally or linguistically diverse groups

Values

Compassion: Building empathy and understanding for those most in need, and in recognition of social and economic inequities.

Wholistic: Delivering measured, transparent patient-centred outcomes; supporting personal growth and empowerment.

Transparent: Working with integrity, accountability and evidence-based practice.
