History

The West Coast Eagles have been supporting Cancer Council Western Australia since their partnership began in 2005, and each year the club helps raise funds through the Dig Deep Campaign.

Over the past 14 years the West Coast Eagles has raised more than $1.47million dollars for Cancer Council WA.

This significant contribution helps Cancer Council WA support the 12,000 Western Australians diagnosed with cancer each year.

Player ambassadors

Influential Eagles Luke Shuey and Andrew Gaff have encouraged West Coast fans to get behind the Dig Deep campaign since they became Cancer Council WA ambassadors in 2015 and they will again call on our much-loved blue and gold army to support and contribute to another successful fundraising campaign.

What are we funding?

One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime - together with Cancer Council WA, we are united to change that. Cancer research is what will help find new ways to beat cancer more effectively, understand how cancer develops, diagnose cancer earlier and improve the quality of life for people living with cancer. That is why each year the funds from the Dig Deep campaign are directed to Cancer Council WA's research program, allowing WA researchers to discover new ways to beat cancer. The money raised from our fans and members goes towards a range of cancer projects and scholarships. The funds raised from the 2016 Dig Deep campaign fully funded the Professor Daniel Galvao project, a survivorship program improving health outcomes after cancer through exercise, and partially funded Dr Carolyn McIntyre’s research into exercise as medicine in the management of mesothelioma. Professor Galvao’s research aims to investigate how exercise can be used in cancer management to improve patient’s outcomes. This research will develop ready-to-implement population-based and translatable physical activity strategies aimed at improving outcomes for cancer patients. Dr McIntyre's research is based at ECU’s Exercise Medicine Research Institute and aims to improve outcomes in patients with mesothelioma through the use of exercise during treatment. Patients with mesothelioma often suffer with muscle loss, tiredness, poor quality of life and are often unable to do daily tasks. Exercise has been shown to be very effective in improving the health of patients with lung and other cancers, but this is the first piece of work to examine the role of exercise in improving the care of patients with mesothelioma.
