Younger Women's Cancer Support Group

ACT & Surrounding Region (YWCSG)

Request Support 


Our group is made up of younger women who have survived, still fighting and/or have experience caring for a direct family member/s with cancer. We understand all the additional challenges on top of dealing with the pain and scanxiety that goes with having a cancer diagnosis at a younger age, in addition to the longer term aftereffects as well when remission begins and adjusting back to a new normal.

YWCSG will be running networking events, social activities and information sessions throughout the year for its members. These will provide members with information about other services, support and activities that are available in the Canberra region as well as provide a social opportunity to meet other members and build our network/friendship support. More information on these will be provided at a later date.

In order to ensure our Facebook group remains a safe place for our members to support each other, our group page is set to a private privacy setting and requires approval upon request.

If you meet the membership criteria and would like to join our group, we welcome all those who need our support and friendship with open arms. Please send us a Join Group request:
