Join us in Sydney on World Cancer Day as we celebrate cancer survivors over two special events. Scientists, clinicians and members of the community will come together for breakfast and to hear how we are taking action to create a world without cancer through collaborative research. Then a group of cancer survivors will climb the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. In the afternoon, we will profile researchers and health professionals who have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of those touched by cancer.

Thanks to research, cancer outcomes have improved enormously over the last 30 years. There are now many cancer survivors living with the long-term effects of their disease, needing therapy and support. We are transforming cancer detection, treatment and survivorship through research, using our strengths and expertise to make a difference. On World Cancer Day, we are celebrating cancer survivors and showing how our research is making the outlook brighter into the future.
