CANCER Council SA has commissioned a
research project to help improve its support
services for South Australians affected by can-
cer, their loved ones and carers.
Despite improved survival rates, a cancer
diagnosis remains a major life stressor. Cancer
treatments are often invasive and prolonged,
placing significant demands on the person
diagnosed, their carers, family and friends.
If you are 18 years or over and have ever
been diagnosed with cancer, or you are a part-
ner/caregiver of someone diagnosed with can-
cer (current or recently bereaved), Cancer
Council SA would like to hear from you.
"We are keen to hear about your experiences
regarding your need for and use of support
services in relation to cancer, and how Cancer
Council SA can better meet the needs of peo-
ple affected by cancer in the future," CEO
Professor Brenda Wilson said.
"We would particularly like to hear from
more men about their experiences with cancer
as they can often have different support needs
to women and we want to make sure their
needs are heard and addressed."
