Aboriginal cancer journeys : our stories of kinship, hope and survival


Cancer Council NSW, Woolloomooloo, NSW, 2010

Aboriginal people from urban, rural and remote areas of New South Wales share their experiences about how cancer has impacted on their lives. Their insights highlight many issues, including late diagnosis, denial, family concerns, palliative care, and grief and loss. They reinforce the importance of providing information about cancer, and raising community awareness for all to take urgent action to reduce the impacts of cancer on Aboriginal peoples.
