The Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation consists of volunteers who assist cancer sufferers in so many ways.

One arm of their support is the transporting of cancer patients to hospitals and clinics in Adelaide for treatment and consultation with specialists.

The McIlroy Auto Group, in Victor Harbor, is one local business which is always there to help the not-for-profit foundation and has shown its support by supplying a Mitsubishi to transport cancer sufferers to Adelaide for treatment.

Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation chair Ian McCallum said the group was thankful for the continued support of the McIlroy Auto Group.

The Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation was founded in 2002, is a registered charity and is completely self-funded, meaning they do not receive any government funding.

All funds are made up of donations from the community, fundraising events and the support of local business and service clubs.

The charity offers a range of services including transport service, allowing patients to be transported to and from Adelaide for cancer treatments, Breast Cancer Nurse and wigs for loan.

They also have various support groups such as Breast of Friends, a men’s support group and a crafts group.

On September 29 they will host a barbecue at Bunnings to raise money to help victims of cancer.
