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.
