    How we helped in the last year

    $5.8 million+  has been invested into cancer research over the past 26 years. 

    253,892 is the number of times our prevention messages were seen online by Tasmanians.

    66,800 Tasmanian children (and their families) are part of the SunSmart program in childcare and schools across the state.

    500+ wigs are now available to those experiencing hairloss due to cancer treatment

    $30,000 of Seize the Day Scholarships were awarded to 29 brave young people who have been impacted by cancer.

    238,000km's were covered by our transport2treatment drivers - that's the equivalent of driving around the world nearly 6 times! 

    Thank you for enabling us to empower and support Tasmanians impacted by cancer since 1995.
