About Us

The 4 C’s stands for Chicks with Cancer who Coffee & Chat

 
We are a local support and social group for women who have experienced a cancer diagnosis.
Originally established in 2007 by Nillumbik Community Health Service, we have since become independent and continue to grow.
The group is made up of women in our community who are looking for a support network
of other women with similar experiences & who can come together to support one another
and share their thoughts and experiences with other women who know how they feel.
The 4 C’s are a recognised Cancer Council support group
