Cvivor Active Cancer Support

The C-vivor fitness group help you reap the benefits of physical activity whilst connecting with peers impacted by cancer.

Connect with others impacted by cancer in our active support groups

Around 27,000 Queenslanders are diagnosed with cancer each year, and of those diagnosed, 66 per cent will survive five or more years. As people diagnosed with cancer are living longer, the need to address quality of life, psychosocial and survivorship issues has become ever more important.  For every person diagnosed with cancer there are others who are intimately involved as their carer or family member.  It’s for these reasons that Cancer Council Queensland has developed the c-vivor program.

c-vivor is an activity-based peer support program which brings together people who have been affected by cancer to participate in a regular physical or wellness activity. The program aims to combine the benefits of physical activity with the well-known psychosocial benefits of peer support.

Those taking part in the activities may be people with a cancer diagnosis who are moving through or have completed treatment, or family members and significant others. The activities, such as walking, cycling, swimming, gardening, or fitness classes, are designed for people of all levels of fitness and take place in a social and supportive setting.
