The barriers and isolation experienced by these patients can be significant. It can often mean high costs and limited – and in some cases, no – support, education or treatment options due to limited knowledge, expertise, research and investment.
Rare Cancers Awareness Day is held annually on 26 June. It’s a day to celebrate and support Australians affected by rare cancer and highlight the support patients need and deserve.
Join them throughout the month of June as they seek to improve understanding of rare cancers, raise awareness of the unique challenges patients face, share stories from the rare cancer community, and ultimately call for change.
