On World Cancer Day, we'll be celebrating survivors of cancer, telling their stories and explaining that the many medical advances leading to more people living well after cancer have all been brought about by research.
We will take a group of people to the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney’s iconic landmark. The group will include those who have survived cancer themselves, are living with cancer or have cared for someone with cancer. Our aim is to raise awareness and highlight the importance of research to improving the lives of those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis.
