The LEAP Cancer Support Group meets monthly on a Friday afternoon (1pm) at a community venue in Burwood. It welcomes all women affected by breast cancer, though women with advanced cancer or bereaved as a result of cancer may not find the group meets their needs. Activities include peer discussion, social activities, education sessions, relaxation activities, therapeutic activities delivered by qualified practitioners and some fundraising (particularly supporting cancer agencies). Meetings are free to attend. Call 13 11 20 for more information, including the exact address, and to be put in contact with the group leader.

Please note: Meeting location and contact details are not displayed publicly to protect the privacy and safety of all group participants. Call 13 11 20 for more information about a group.

Can't find a group that suits you?

If you can't find what you need, try entering a keyword to search the whole record: for example women or stoma or Werribee.

If there are no groups for the specific cancer type you are looking for, consider whether a group without a specific cancer focus would suit you or call 13 11 20 to find individual supports.
