CANSurvive, Busselton

2nd Thursday of month 1pm-3pm

The CANSurvive Support Group in Busselton is supported and endorsed by Solaris Cancer Care. The group is facilitated by Sue Evans, and have been meeting for seven years, supporting men, women and their carers with all sorts of cancers.

The meetings are structured around sharing experiences with like-minded people, supporting each other without judgement and providing information from guest speakers and from people’s own journeys. The group overflows with compassion and eases the fear of going the journey alone.

Please contact Sue Evans directly for more information and venue information on 0438 554 126.

 

Additionally, Solaris Cancer Care has two regional cancer support centres in WA, provide a retreat for patients, families and carers.

Each Centre provides a quiet place to relax, reflect and escape the hospital setting; seek a range of accurate information and resources or a friendly place to have a cup of tea and chat.
