Cancer Connect

Cancer Connect

When you have cancer, talking to someone who has had a similar cancer experience and understands what you are going through can be helpful and reassuring. 

Cancer Connect is a free and confidential telephone peer support service where we can link people with volunteers who have had a smiliar cancer experience.

All of our volunteers are specially trained to provide telephone support, have recovered from a similar cancer experience and are supported by health professionals. They can listen to you and share their experiences and ways of coping.

 You may have lots of questions regarding the cancer journey such as, what chemotherapy is like, working through treatment, making decisions about treatment options or how to cope once treatment has finished.

Cancer Connect is available for people newly diagnosed with cancer, those undergoing cancer treatment and  for people having trouble with cancer survivorship issues.

If you would like to talk to a volunteer or would like further information about Cancer Connect please call Cancer Council 13 11 20.
