Cancer Support Services

Cancer Support services at Sydney Adventist HospitalA diagnosis of cancer can be accompanied by intense emotions including shock, fear and anxiety for the patient and family members.

At Sydney Adventist Hospital we provide support for all those in the community affected by cancer, primarily through our Cancer Support Centre.

Founded in 1993, our Cancer Support Centre provides a wide range of services to the community, including support groups, education lectures, counselling, resources and information in a warm, comforting and supportive environment. Trained staff and volunteers are able to provide assistance to help people regain a sense of control over their lives.
