Cancer information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

  • Aborignal-people-with-cancer

The Aboriginal Health & Medical Research Council Cancer Council NSW has created cancer information resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

One of the resources is Aboriginal cancer journeys: Our stories of kinship, hope and survival is a factsheet and a booklet of stories from Indigenous people affected by cancer. The PDF was created with funding provided by Cancer Australia, the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW and Cancer Council NSW.

This page also links to the Aboriginal Cancer Council website with information about cancer, treatment, support and research. It includes information for the community and health workers as well as personal stories and videos.

Please Note: Readers are also advised that these resources contain stories from some people who are now deceased.

Cancer Council NSW is also working towards closing the gap on Aboriginal cancer.

Cancer Advisor is looking for more content for Indigenous Australians facing cancer. Leave a comment below, share your own story or recommend a resource.
