Cancer Voices SA - Cycling Team - background
We started training together in early December 2008, in preparation for the 2009 Tour Down Under Community Challenge Ride. Thanks Ben Flannagan from Stonyfell EFM Health Club, for volunteering to take us on training rides. The training tips and encouragement from these rides helped many to achieve a ‘personal challenge’ way beyond expectation. Follow our journey...Click on Gallery and see where we've gone since then!

Cancer Voices is led by people using their lived experience of cancer to improve the path for others.
With approximately 1 in 2 people in Australia diagnosed with cancer at some time in their life, almost everyone is affected by cancer, whether it is themselves, family, a friend, colleague or neighbour. Cancer Voices SA (CVSA) focus on Advocacy, Involvement, Awareness and Information to represent the views of those affected by cancer.
Currently most CVSA activity is focussed on facilitating access to world’s best-practice cancer treatment and care which also take into account the mental and social effects of cancer, not just the physical symptoms. We seek coordinated, patient-focussed and multidisciplinary care, with high quality information and communication, across the spectrum of diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and palliative care – it is about looking after the whole person beyond their clinical cancer treatment.
