You are helping to make cancer history

It is estimated that in 2019, 144,713 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer and 49,896 people will die from cancer this year*. Your support is vital in helping to improve outcomes and provide hope for those affected by this disease.

When you purchase your Mater Cars for Cancer ticket, you are joining the global effort to change the future of cancer diagnosis, treatment and care, whilst providing support to those in your community receiving treatment at Mater, just like Simone.

At just 44 years old, Simone uttered the four words no parent wants to say to their children, “I have breast cancer”.
“My cancer had an effect on everyone around me, from my three son’s right through to my breast care nurse. Everyone feels what you’re going through.”

“Research is the greatest tool we have in the fight against cancer“ - Professor Mike McGuckin, Deputy Director-Research, Mater Research

Your generous support gives you the chance to drive away in a high-powered performance vehicle whilst giving back to the community and contributing to the life-changing research into cancer being undertaken at Mater Research.
