Being involved in such a program ensures that the experiences I endured during my own cancer battles, along with the processes I went through, can be put to good use in assisting present and future consumers.

My Cancer Care Record
My Cancer Care Record is a resource that supports people affected by cancer to store and record their medical and health-related information in one place.
It provides tips on questions and information to ask health professionals. It can also assist you to record specific details that you may be frequently asked and find hard to remember.
The folder has eight key sections to help you organise your medical information.
Financial & legal
Tests & results
The folder is aimed at helping with issues related to managing information when you have multiple treatments provided by multiple people, across different services and over long periods of time. It can assist you to be able to communicate across the variety of health care professionals involved in your care.
My Cancer Care Record can also help the clinicians working with you. It can provide easy access to information they often require such as:
copies of your test results and letters from other hospitals/doctors
current medication, medical and family history, current treatment schedules
details of side effects & symptoms you might have had since your last appointment
contact details of other clinicians involved in your care
