About the Survivor Study

What are the challenges faced by cancer survivors? Emotional? Physical? Day-to-day? Help us make a difference to the lives of others.

Too often, cancer survivors learn to ‘just live with’ the emotional, physical and practical effects of this disease because they can’t find the right resources or support. That’s why Cancer Council Queensland launched the Survivor study.

The Survivor Study recruited people with cancer to take part in a ground-breaking research project, the first of its kind in Australia. The study aimed to understand how cancer has changed people’s lives and help us gain an insight into the concerns of those affected.

The information provided will help us develop specialised support to improve quality of life for all Queenslanders affected by cancer.

Kylee Sanson - Cancer Survivor

Kylee Sanson was diagnosed with melanoma when she was just 21.

Now a young Mum, Kylee believes sharing her story as a survivor may save others from the pain that cancer brings.

“The more that we know about the impact of cancer, the more that can be done to support those affected – your children, your partner, your parents, and of course, you.

It’s important for cancer survivors to complete this survey. Understanding the effect of cancer on a person’s wellbeing, and discovering ways to help other cancer survivors in the future, can only be identified through surveys like this”.
