Cancer Council Queensland offers a range of support and information sessions throughout the year, in locations across the state. These sessions are conducted in a supportive group environment for people affected by cancer, their carers, partners, friends and families.
Presentations from experienced health professionals cover general awareness, side effects and treatment, survivorship, healthy living and coping tools such as mindfulness meditation.
Our programs assist people to adjust to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer by providing:
- Support – providing the opportunity to share experiences with others going through a similar experience.
- Information – about cancer and treatments to help people prepare for treatment and to participate better in treatment decisions.
- Skills training – relaxation techniques and helpful ways to managing thinking.

Caring for the Carer 'How do we care for the carer?'
This free webinar is being run by Cancer Council NSW, and is available to everyone.
Caring for someone with cancer involves managing both your own physical and emotional needs and those of the person you are caring for. It is a demanding role, which can be stressful and the source of anxiety, but you must look after yourself. We will be discussing various ways you can care for yourself along with ideas your family and friends can use to help you. Along with some practical tips on navigating the experience of cancer while balancing the demands of caring, family, work and your own needs.
