Australian Cancer Council / Pink Ribbon Ride

We have all been affected in one way or another from the devastating affects of cancer.  Through the Sydney Facility Service ”Pay it Forward”  initiative we are committed in supporting the research so desperately needed to find a cure.

Research is the key to finding answers to our questions about cancer – what causes cell damage, why cells turn cancerous, how cancer grows and spreads and how we can most effectively attack it.

Cancer Council Australia and our members are the leading funders of independent cancer research and related activities in Australia, granting more than $54 million to cancer research, research scholarships and fellowships in 2013.

Cancer is a disease of the body’s cells. Normally cells grow and multiply in a controlled way, however, if something causes a mistake to occur in the cells’ genetic blueprints, this control can be lost. Cancer is the term used to describe collections of these cells, growing and potentially spreading within the body. As cancerous cells can arise from almost any type of tissue cell, cancer actually refers to about 100 different diseases.

Cancer cells that do not spread beyond the immediate area in which they arise are said to be benign ie. they are not dangerous. If these cells spread into surrounding areas, or to different parts of the body, they are known as malignant – commonly referred to as cancer.

Cancer affects a large number of Australians, both directly and indirectly.

Cancer Council Australia provides credible, up-to-date information about different types of cancerdiagnosisand treatment.

You will also find information about genetic and family history aspects of cancer, help finding a treatment specialist and support for patients, family and carers.

As well as research grants, a number of state and territory Cancer Councils operate epidemiological and behavioural research units that undertake research aimed at improving cancer prevention and detection.
