Nearly half the number of people who come through our doors are supporting someone who has cancer.
It’s natural to feel a range of emotions when someone close to you has cancer and it’s important that you know that we are here to support you too, whether you are family, a friend or work colleague.
Sometimes it’s a matter of not knowing what to say (or what not to say), or how you can offer appropriate help. We are here to listen and give you some tips.
Whether you’re a young person touched by cancer in some way or you want advice about how to talk to young children about cancer, we have resources available to suit all age ranges. We have a large quiet room where we can listen and take questions from your families if this is helpful to you.
Are you a health professional or an employer?
Maybe you are supporting somebody who has cancer, or an employee has a diagnosis and you are not sure what to say or what to expect.
We are here for you too. You can speak to a member of our team or we can send you any relevant information from our resource library.
The complementary referral form can be printed and completed by any member of the patient’s health professional team (GP, Oncologist, Surgeon, specialist nurse or oncology nurse)
