Research is the best hope of detecting skin cancer before it destroys more lives. Will you please help by donating today?

Kay died of a skin cancer that was not found – until it was too late.

Six days. That’s how long Kay and her family had to come to terms with the fact that her advanced melanoma was going to take her life.

It was a metastatic melanoma which took Kay’s life just three days short of her 53rd birthday and three days after Mother’s Day. The cancer that ravaged her body also robbed her of what should have been some of the best years of her life.

Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Even though melanomas on the surface of the skin can be detected and removed, very little is known about how skin cancer develops and spreads.

Cancer Council Queensland is now funding ground-breaking research that could bring new hope to people like Kay.

Will you please make a donation today to help us find better ways of diagnosing and treating the cancer that affects so many Queenslanders?
