About us

The Cancer Council Online Community is a safe and supportive online discussion site for people affected by cancer, their carers and families.

Joining the community is free and your contact details are kept confidential. Once you've joined, you will have access to the following services:

Our forums can be read by anyone, but in order to interact with others and post messages of your own, you will need to join the community.

A blog is a shared online journal where people can post diary entries about their personal experiences.

Online Support Groups
Groups are quite similar to a forum, but are usually dedicated to a single subject area or purpose. Some of our groups are closed, in order to allow our members to freely discuss subjects in a private area.

Feel free to explore!


Your conduct and use of this site is subject to our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Community Guidelines.
