An estimated 114,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in Australia in 2010. Providing support for cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers is a key activity of Cancer Councils around Australia.

This is done by delivering practical and emotional support to cancer patients, their families and friends.

Directory of Services ? a resource provided through CanNET NT

Information provided in the Northern Territory Cancer Services Directory is intended to act as a guide to a range of services for people with cancer, their carers, and for health professionals working in cancer care. It is recognised that information about cancer is vital to those whose lives have been touched by cancer. Such information can provide access to a range of tools, assisting people on the cancer journey to understand, accept, and cope with the disease.

This directory includes information about services provided by Government and non-Government organisations including national and Territory bodies representing various facets of the cancer journey.

Services range from counselling, to the use of prosthetics, to access to educational information. People dealing with cancer may require more than one such service during their journey.
