Live Through This is a cancer support and advocacy service for the LGBTIQ+ community. Cancer can affect anyone but is more common in LGBTIQ+ people. Until now, the queer community has gone largely underrepresented and we want to change that. We provide a safe space for anybody who identifies as part of the queer spectrum and has had an experience with any kind of cancer at any stage from testing, diagnosis, treatment, remission to long term care.
We think it is important that both patients and professionals are aware of how sexual orientation and gender identity can affect the cancer experience so that everyone can access the appropriate support specific to their needs.
We understand that being an LGBTIQ+ person with cancer can feel isolating so we are here to prove we are not alone and are here with you along the way.
We believe community is key and is strengthened by mutual care.
