Cancer Council offers support to women for the entire breast cancer journey via the Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20 – a free, confidential service where patients, family and friends can talk to cancer health professionals for information and guidance. Women can access information on a variety of topics - from where they can access wig banks, to what their treatments options are, or how to talk to their children about their diagnosis.
