We are conducting a research study about the support needed by people affected by cancer, including anyone with a current or past cancer diagnosis, and anyone caring for someone affected by cancer.

This information will be used to plan Cancer Council NSW's services and to campaign for broader health system changes to improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer.
