Game On Cancer® is an initiative of Cure Cancer, a charity that funds early-career cancer researchers who are working across all cancers and all areas of cancer research.
Over the past 55 years, Cure Cancer has raised $87m to support over 540 lifesaving research grants across all cancer types.
Our vision is to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
Why young researchers?
Cure Cancer supports researchers at the start of their careers, when few other funding bodies will take the chance.
In today’s research environment, funding is incredibly tight, meaning research grants are few and far between. The majority are awarded to scientists who have a proven track record of results, so very few grants are available to young researchers.
This has led to potentially lifesaving research from incredibly talented young minds going unexplored.
We’re here to change that.

Why do we fund research to all cancer types?
Sadly, 9.6 million people die from cancer every year worldwide, and 1 Australian dies every 12 minutes from cancer. Cancer doesn’t discriminate, which is why Cure Cancer funds crucial research from bright young scientists working across all cancer types.
Here are the awesome partners working with us in the fight against cancer!
