Who we are
Sisters Cancer Support Group (SCSG) is a community based, non for profit organisation that provides support for women from Multicultural communities affected by cancer.
SCSG is the first Multicultural specific cancer support group registered with Cancer Council NSW and Breast Cancer Network Australia ( BCNA).
We understand that a cancer diagnosis affects not only the patient but the family and the community. We work to support both the patient and their family and friends.
Getting on with life after treatment may not be as easy. We understand you’re not the same person after a cancer diagnosis, and will help support you after this life changing experience
