Cancer touches all of us either directly or indirectly during our lives. Today, more than half of those diagnosed with cancer will have a successful response to treatment. This significant progress is due to the dedication of clinicians, nurses, scientists, volunteers and benefactors, who are all creating a better future for people touched by cancer.
Sir Peter MacCallum believed that nothing but the best is good enough in the treatment of cancer. We strive to maintain his dream.
