'According to the latest statistics from the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare, 380 people are diagnosed with cancer every day. That’s an estimated 138,000 people this year alone. This is why your support and the support of our fabulous network of alumni, corporates, fundraisers, donors and Principal Partner Can Too is vital in helping to change the future and help make this the last generation to die from cancer.'
