I’m Kate, Cancer Information Consultant at Cancer Council ACT’s 13 11 20 Information and Support line.
Today is a very special day.. it's 13/11/20! This once in a lifetime date is a perfect moment to highlight the incredible resource that is the 13 11 20 Information and Support line and remind all Australians impacted by cancer to reach out and ask for support.
The line is open, Monday to Friday (9am-5pm).
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 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. Our support services include the provision of information as well as practical and emotional support for anyone who is affected by cancer, throughout every stage of the cancer experience.
There’s no question that we’ve all been through an uncertain and difficult time in 2020. But it’s thanks to the continued and unwavering support of our donors and community that we can continue providing this vital service. In particular, thanks to Dry July Foundation, who have supported 13 11 20 this year.
On behalf of the Cancer Council ACT team and all Canberran’s impacted by cancer... thank you.
Thank you for ensuring we can be a listening ear for those in need.
Thank you for enabling us to be there for each person whether they've personally experienced cancer, or are a family member, friend, colleague or carer in need of support.
This 13 11 20 day, together, we recognise the incredible difference this service can make to people's lives.
