Description

The booklet, Aboriginal cancer journeys: our stories of kinship, hope and survival contains different stories and experiences from Aboriginal people affected by cancer. Some stories are about the experience of being diagnosed with cancer, others are about the experience of caring for someone with cancer and some are about undertaking treatment.

For example:

These stories offer insight to help prepare other Indigenous people affected by cancer with the issues that can arise during the development of the disease.

The booklet also contains individual fact sheets included in a pocket in the back cover of the booklet. These fact sheets provide additional information about cancer, treatment and care options, as well as information to consider before undertaking any form of treatment.

When to use this resource

This resource would be useful for Indigenous Health Workers to deliver to Indigenous communities. It is easy to read and provides very useful factual information as well as personal stories about individual experiences with cancer and management of the disease. It could be used to generate discussions about cancer, to provide support to sufferers and their carers, and to dispel any myths or misunderstandings about the disease and the treatment of the disease.
