How you can make a difference

The money you raise through Walking Stars will help to fund breakthrough research and extend a helping hand to cancer patients and their families at a time in their lives when they need it most.

  • The survival rate for many cancers has improved by up to 30% and today over 60% of cancer patients will survive more than five years.
  • But there is so much more to do.


Your support will change lives for the better by ensuring those going through cancer receive compassionate care and support through:

  • Home visits to cancer patients by Cancer Society Community Liaison Nurses
  • Free counselling for cancer patients and their families
  • Advice and information for those affected by cancer though the 0800 Cancer Information line
  • Help stamp out preventable cancer through health promotion and education
