Being a Cancer Council 13 11 20 Nurse is a diverse job and no two days are alike—even after 11 years—but one thing that is often the same is the gratitude callers feel around simply being heard.

It’s so rewarding being able to help every person that calls, even in the simplest of ways. Sometimes people just need to talk, and sometimes they need us to share our experience and knowledge to guide and support them through a rough time. Being there to help people no matter what stage of their cancer journey they are at—from learning of a new cancer diagnosis, right through to recovery or end of life issues—is an honour.”

The information, support and advice offered through Cancer Council 13 11 20 is available because of your generosity—in fact, all of the Cancer Council SA services that offer advice and care at a crucial time in people’s lives are funded by people like you.

Thank you for helping nurses like Deb to ease the fear and loneliness caused by cancer by ensuring support is just a phone call away. Because of you, no South Australian has to feel lost, confused or go through cancer alone.
