There are over 200 types of cancer that can affect men. Prostate, bowel, melanoma and lung cancer are the most common types of cancers in Australian men. It is estimated that over 74,000 Australian men will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

When you donate to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF), you are providing critical support, which provides world-class scientists with equipment to pursue their research initiatives. We award grants to projects with the power to improve prevention, detection and treatment of all types of cancer.
Together we can make these statistics history and outsmart cancer for good.
