Our Aim & Purpose

To facilitate open communication and personal experience to enable participants to create the environment to be able to share cancer experiences together as a patient or carer.

We do not give advice & we do not make judgments. Cancer is hard enough, but to do it alone with no personal support is most undesirable.

The focus of each group meeting is for participants to voice their needs, concerns, breakthroughs and experiences.

We are ordinary people sharing experiences and knowledge. The Bendigo Cancer Support Group (BCSG) has been going since December 2004 and is a non-profit organisation run by a small group of volunteers with the support of a Bendigo Health Oncology Welfare Worker.
