Being diagnosed with cancer or supporting a loved one with cancer can leave you with many questions.
Support during COVID-19
Cancer Council Queensland values the safety of our staff, volunteers, and especially those living with cancer. We are focused on doing what we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Queensland.
Our 13 11 20 team is continuing to provide support to those diagnosed with cancer, their family, friends and health professionals via telephone and email.
Due to telephone network congestion, people are finding it difficult to get through by phone. If you are unable to get through to us on the phone, please email us and we will call you back.
Health Professionals can refer their clients for support by completing the Request for Cancer Support Online form.
