Improving the quality of cancer care in the Hastings, Macleay & Camden Haven area since 2005

Our Stories

The “Our Stories” Project aims to give a voice to local people affected by cancer and to help record and share their stories. Hearing how others have walked a similar path can be encouraging and inspiring, particularly when times are tough. If you would like to share your cancer story get in touch with us via the contacts page.
