Take part in an education session designed for parents who have been diagnosed with cancer

Cancer in a parent with young children is stressful for the entire family. Many parents worry about the impact of their illness on their children and say they would like help to talk to their children about their cancer. Currently, there are no accessible programs for parents with cancer who would like parenting assistance.

The Royal Women’s Hospital, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and The Royal Melbourne Hospital have developed a new resource to support adults who are receiving cancer treatment with a view to longer term survival while also parenting young children.

They are now ready to trial this new program to find out if parents think it is helpful. Participation is completed from home and does not require any hospital visits.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Michelle Sinclair on: or 8345 3908.

National Advance Care Planning Week

16 – 22 April 2018

If you were unable to speak for yourself, who would you want to speak for you? More importantly, what health care decisions would you want them to make?  Between 16-22 April this year, we are encouraging all Australians to discuss their future health care preferences with their loved ones.

Get involved!

Advance Care Planning are inviting health care organisations and community groups to host an event to help raise awareness. It can be a simple morning tea or a more formal seminar.

Advance Care Planning have some event tips available, relevant forms for your state/territory and downloadable event promotional resources, available on their website to help you plan your event.
