Patient Support Groups

 

The Unicorn Foundation has established patient support groups in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.  

Being diagnosed with cancer can be a scary and confronting experience. Being diagnosed with Neuroendocrine or Carcinoid cancer is even more confusing and daunting due to the lack of information and resources readily available. Therefore one of the main aims of the Unicorn Foundation is to provide support to patients by bringing them together in a relaxed yet informative environment.
