    Your generosity will ensure Cancer Council’s 13 11 20 cancer nurses can continue to support people impacted by cancer during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.  

     

     

    Sam was first diagnosed with cancer in June 2018. In the last two years, she and her two boys, Levi, aged 12, and Jye, aged seven, have been through more than most go through in a lifetime, but she hasn’t had to go through any of it alone. Cancer Council’s 13 11 20 support service has been there through it all, by her side, every step of the way.

     

    13 11 20 was there for Sam when she needed help breaking the news to her young boys that she had just 12 months to live.  

     

    13 11 20 was there for Sam when she needed help dealing with her own feelings about the cancer growing inside her.

     

    And with your help this invaluable support service can continue to be there for Sam, and the thousands of other South Australians who are dealing with their own life-changing cancer diagnoses during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

    The reality for Sam and every other cancer patient during this pandemic is that people
    with weakened immune systems are at greater risk of contracting the virus.

    At a time when there are countless other South Australians who, just like Sam, have been forced into isolation away
    from friends, family and supports, the support offered through 13 11 20 is needed now more than ever. 

     

    Your generosity today will make sure 13 11 20 is here tomorrow and into the future to provide support, lessen the worry, and lighten the load of thousands of South Australians in this unprecedented time of need. Your donation will ensure no one has to go through cancer alone.
