The Stomal Therapy Support Group meets every second month on a Friday from 11am at a hospital in Mildura. The group is supported by a stomal therapy nurse and by Sunraysia Cancer Resources. Activities centre around peer discussion and social activities, but includes education sessions on topics such as new and helpful products. The group welcomes people with bowel, colorectal and bladder cancers and their carers and family members, and has members from diverse backgrounds. Call 13 11 20 for more information, including the exact meeting address, and to be put in contact with the group leader.

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.
