support we're here for all Australians affected by cancer

Every day, we give those affected by cancer
support when they need it most.

Supporting people affected by cancer is at the heart of everything we do. We know that coping with cancer is challenging, and when you or someone you love is dealing with a cancer diagnosis, travelling for treatment, or adjusting to life after cancer treatment, getting the right information and support is crucial.

Cancer Council is the only charity in Australia that delivers a comprehensive range of support services for all people, affected by all cancers, across every state and territory. Our support services include information, counselling, practical and emotional support, all designed with and for people affected by cancer, for every stage of the cancer journey.

Support from people like you helps us be there for the thousands of Australians affected by cancer each year who need our help.
