Make more memories

We all have our favourite footy memories, and we all want to create more. 

Cold, wet Saturday arvos standing at the back of the grandstand with Dad watching your team get up. Kick-to-kick after the siren. Swapping footy cards at school. 

Cancer is Australia's biggest killer but more than a third of cancers can be prevented. Make sure the men in your life are around to create more footy memories in the future.

Jack Riewoldt's footy card

Cancer Council Victoria is proud to announce Jack Riewoldt as an official Ambassador in a new partnership with the AFL Players' Association. 

Following the discovery of a spot on Jack’s back, it was through the persuasion of his partner that encouraged Jack to see a doctor and get the spot checked out. After some tests were conducted, Jack was informed the spot was a melanoma that needed to be removed.

This experience has made Jack much more SunSmart and passionate about raising awareness on how to reduce the risk of getting cancer. A third of cancers are preventable - find out how you can Cut Your Cancer Risk.

Scott Thompson's footy card

All-Australian and North Melbourne champion Scott Thompson is a proud Ambassador for Cancer Council Victoria this September. Scott tragically lost his father Don to Bowel cancer in 2010. 

Bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in Australia, yet is highly curable if found early. Screening initiatives like the National Bowel Screening program help detect bowel cancer early. Taking the test is simple and you can do it at home. 

Scott wants to encourage open conversations with those around him to get tested and screened for a range of cancers. Find out more here.


Sam Rowe's footy card

Carlton Football Club defender Sam Rowe was already into the 2012 season when he discovered a small lump. He successfully underwent treatment for testicular cancer and is now proud to volunteer his time with Cancer Council Victoria to share his experience.

While the physical toll on his body was extensive, Sam knows that those close to him suffered a lot of stress as well. Cancer Council has a range of services to support people and their loved ones through a diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. Call our Helpline (13 11 20) or visit your local Cancer Council website for more information.
