When cancer can't be cured

There are many types of cancer. Each type has a different development. We cannot cure some cancer types

We understand it can be overwhelming to find out we cannot cure your cancer. There are often treatments that can slow the growth or manage the symptoms. These treatments can be effective for months or even years. 

What we do when cancer can't be cured

We are here to help. We supply resources which may help you and your family make plans and decisions together

Patient resources are also available in the information lounge found on Level 2. Everyone is welcome to visit and speak to our friendly staff.
