We’ve just wrapped up Season 1 of Relay For Life for 2018 with our Moonee Valley, Bendigo and Knox events. A huge thank you to all who took to the track and raised money to support people affected by cancer. You should be so proud. It's not too late to be part of the 20th anniversary of Relay For Life. Season 2 will kick off this September, so be sure to join the celebrations by signing up at relayforlife.org.au

Cancer gets many reactions from people who don’t always know what to say or how to react. What are the best and worst things people have said or done during your cancer experience? Whether you’re a cancer survivor, carer, friend, family member or health professional, please share your do’s and dont’s so we can educate others on what works.

A tan or sunburn might fade, but the damage to your DNA is permanent. The more you let it add up, the greater your skin cancer risk.

People with cancer face not only the extra expenses associated with treatment, but also the income lost from taking time off work. This financial stress adds
to the worry of being diagnosed with cancer and may feel overwhelming. Getting help with your finances can take a great weight off your mind, but if you are finding it hard to cope emotionally, try talking to your GP or call 13 11 20 to talk to one of our friendly cancer nurses.
