The group welcomes women with any kind of cancer and their partners. The group also offers a community freezer for short term meal help for people undergoing treatment and support through a Facebook page. Meetings are free to attend.

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.

We thank Cancer Australia and the Ralph Lauren 'Pink Pony' Grants Program for the funds to develop this search tool.
