The Forgotten Cancers Project aims to improve our understanding of less common cancers and their causes. We hope that by doing so, we will be in a better position to prevent these cancers and support people who are diagnosed in the future. We need your help to spread the word to recruit participants.Find out more

Coping Together Study
People diagnosed with breast, bowel, prostate cancer or melanoma AND their partners are invited to take part in the Coping-Together study. This study is being conducted by the University of New South Wales. The aim of the research study is to evaluate two information resource packs and decide which one might best meet the needs of couples following a recent cancer diagnosis (within 4 months of diagnosis).
