About Cancer Counselling Professionals Charity
The diagnosis of cancer can bring a devastating range of emotions, including shock, depression, anger, grief, fear and uncertainty for the person diagnosed, as well as their loved ones. These feelings can result in denial and disbelief, withdrawal and isolation, and the loss of connection to family and friends.
This in turn, affects everyday life issues as well as productivity and concentration at work.
Those affected by cancer are often under severe financial pressure, making it impossible to gain access to counselling when they need it most, as counselling is currently not claimable under Medicare or through Private Health Funds.
It can also be difficult to find professional counsellors with experience in oncology.
Cancer Counselling Professionals seeks to ease the emotional burden of a cancer diagnosis by providing those affected by cancer with subsidised access to counsellors who understand cancer and the impact it has on the patient and those around them.
Remember that Cancer Counselling Professionals is a registered charity so your donations are tax deductible.
Donations to Cancer Counselling Professionals Charity will provide access to professional counselling services for cancer patients, their families and loved ones.
