Rare cancer isn't rare
1 in 5 cancers diagnosed are rare cancers. The only thing more rare than the cancer itself, is the support available to the thousands diagnosed each year.
The Without A Ribbon (WaR) name represents who we fight for....those who are not supported by any other organisation. Those without the recognition of support, metaphorically those "Without a Ribbon" of support.
The acronym WaR represents the ongoing battle each Warrior fights. For some the battle is short, but for others, the battle continues for many years. We refer to our members as Warriors, not survivors. The strength and courage needed to continue each day without support is worthy of the title “WARRIOR”.
Without A Ribbon Inc. (WaR) is a nationally recognised charity established in June 2014 to provide resources and support, not otherwise available, to those diagnosed with Rare Cancer in Australia.
Ease the suffering and distress experienced by Rare Cancer Warriors by helping them to feel that they are surrounded by people who understand. To provide them a support network that is not currently available to them in Australia.
