Information Sessions

Information session

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 information on cancer, treatment options available, survivorship, healthy living, coping tools and support services available.

Our programs assist people to adjust to the diagnosis, treatment and life after cancer treatment 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.
  • Support services available – providing information on support services available to people affected by cancer.
