In Australia each year over 6,000 men and women die of prostate or breast cancer. They are the two most common invasive cancers, and fortunately the most survivable.

The Prostate & Breast Cancer Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people with cancer.

Our programs include:

  • CanCare Patient Navigation – CanCare’s Navigators ‘walk beside’ a person diagnosed with any type of cancer, helping them get the support they need, at the time they need it most;
  • Research at St George Clinical School – investigation of chemo and radioresistance, biomarkers and targeted treatments

Mission: To improve the quality of life for cancer patients with priority to those:

  • Socially or geographically isolated;
  • Economically disadvantaged & unable to afford care; and
  • Culturally or linguistically diverse groups


Compassion: Building empathy and understanding for those most in need, and in recognition of social and economic inequities.

Wholistic: Delivering measured, transparent patient-centred outcomes; supporting personal growth and empowerment.

Transparent: Working with integrity, accountability and evidence-based practice.


WHO (World Health Organisation) define health as
