Complete Cancer Support

Our health system is responsive when it comes to cancer treatment. Lacking however is support through the stages when you are living with cancer, recovering from treatment or waiting for treatment.

Few Australians get the care and support that they need. We are here to change that. 

Why does cancer support and rehabilitation matter?

Cancer comes with many ups and downs. It is time to manage them.

We all know that cancer's symptoms and the side effects of treatment can take a heavy toll on patients. But did you know that a number of cancer side effects can be reduced with a cancer rehab program?

That is right. Cancer rehabilitation can improve quality of life by reducing common symptoms like fatigue, pain, moodiness, anxiety, stress and depression. Yet many people with cancer do not access the care that would reduce their suffering.

So whether you are living with cancer, recovering from treatment or waiting for treatment, our program could be helpful for you.

The dangerous myth about cancer

Think that you should put up your feet and reserve your strength to fight cancer? Wrong.

“All people with cancer should avoid inactivity and return to normal daily activities as soon as possible following diagnosis (i.e. be as physically active as current abilities and conditions allow).”

That is the guidance from the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA). Exercise is part of cancer care from day one. It is important to be active and take a proactive approach to your health.

And while our Cancer Support Complete Program includes much more than personalised help from an exercise physiologist, COSA’s advice shows that taking care of yourself through exercise and more is clinically proven to help people with cancer.
