The Government will invest $70.8 million in vital infrastructure and services to support Australians who are fighting cancer. Rural and regional Australians will benefit from $45.5 million in funding for new regional cancer treatment centres. Further investments include $6 million to the world-class cancer treatment centre Chris O’Brien Lifehouse to support the work of the sarcoma surgical research centre.

Cancer patients living on the Mornington Peninsula, VIC, will be better supported with a new, purpose-built comprehensive cancer and rehabilitation centre. People living on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, will also be able to continue to receive world-class care and support from Bloomhill Cancer Care.
