Cancer Australia - Our Mob and Cancer

Our Mob and Cancer has been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Here you can find information about cancer, including cancer types, prevention, diagnosis, treatment living with cancer, finding support, clinical trials and much more.

Vision and mission

Filled with important information about cancer from trusted sources, it is impartial, non-commercial, evidence-based and respects culture and traditions.

Using a strength-based approach to reflect our resilience and values, the website embodies the views, history and cultural traditions of the communities it serves.

How Our Mob and Cancer can help

Cancer Australia aims to reduce the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve outcomes for people affected by cancer by leading and coordinating national, evidence-based interventions across the continuum of care.
