About Chris O'Brien Lifehouse

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a not-for-profit, comprehensive cancer hospital in Camperdown, Sydney. From screening to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and wellness, we treat all types of cancer, specialising in those that are complex and rare. We offer patients every service and therapy that they need including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, complementary therapies and supportive services, all under the one roof.

Where your money goes

Each year, patients with cancer collectively travel over 380,000 kilometres for access to treatment at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. 

Whether you choose to swim, bike, run, or walk, every step counts for those who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those who have given everything of themselves, for life-saving research and treatment at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. 

As we strive to reduce the journey from research findings to treatment options, the funds you raise enable us to reach more patients and provide access to the highest level of patient care.

Together, we can Go The Distance..
