We have compiled a KnowledgeBase of rare cancer types. Find out more about your cancer, clinical trials, specialists and support services available.
Rare Cancers Australia facilitates a variety of groups, over the telephone but we have the capacity to do video conferencing as well.
For too long, ‘patient-centricity’ and ‘person centred care’ have merely been notional concepts that have not been reflected in the reality of patients’ lived experience.
We understand it may be difficult to find information about a rare cancer, so we've compiled a knowledgebase to help you.
No matter what stage you are within your journey, it can be tough. We can help you seek out support networks to help you through this.
There are tools, resources, and services out there that can help you each step of the way. We can help take the pain out of it all.
Our Patient Treatment Fund can help take the financial worry out of visits to the hospital or pharmacy. We can also offer helpful advice.
Everyone and every cancer is different, so we have a friendly team you can chat with about any questions you may have. If they don't have the answers they will definitely know where to look.
