Knowing about other people’s personal experience of can be a source of support and inspiration when you or someone you love is going through the same thing
In this section our supporters have shared their stories.
If you have a personal experience of cancer you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.
We are always looking for people who have been affected by cancer, whether personally or through a relative, to become media volunteers and share their story in Cancer Council communications and the media.
Real life stories may encourage people to get any symptoms checked out with their GP or go for the screening they’d been putting off, can provide hope and support to people who may be going through a difficult time and can highlight the importance of early detection and symptoms to look out for.
Your stories help us engage with the public and may encourage people to make a donation or take part in one of our fundraising events, therefore supporting our work to beat cancer every day, in every way, and save more lives.
