Welcome to the Women’s Cancer Support-Gold Coast .
We are a Gold Coast wide service developed specifically to support women with cancer.
The Women’s Cancer Support – GC GROUP is both online and face to face support group with regular meetups and events. We have Local leaders and buddies in each Postcode or suburb from Beenleigh to Kingscliff and including Mt Tamborine & Beaudesert. We also have chat groups for women with ALL various types of cancer. (e.g. Brain, Lung, Colorectal, Metastatic etc). We will be continually developing the website to provide more information for our members.
How WCS-GC Started
Sandra Johston OAM started a Support group for women with Breast Cancer in 2019 after her own diagnosis in 2017.
Sandra had many Questions?
See the scars ?
Find out about costs ?
Other People’s journeys ?
It was decided to open up the group to Women with ALL types of Cancers. Hence the group was formed and became the Women’s Cancer Support – GC
and “Rainbow Warriors”
Now with over 700 + cancer warriors and/or survivors.

WCS-gc We were donated 1000 brown paper bags, so we do craft sessions where we decorate, paint, and make those bags look really nice. We have a packing session where a group help pack 25 or so at a time.
WCS-gc Members come together for a sewing social day to cut out, sew, & stuff them. Sometimes other charities sew some for us when we need them asap. Some members sew them at home.
WCS-gc One of our lovelies holds the wigs and headwear and brings some to pamper days and events or meets up with lovelies to FIT the suitable wig and or headwear. She washes the wigs etc.
WCS have added a lot of documents to the “GUIDES” over the past 3 years – from members, various organisations and some links to websites. You will need to be a MEMBER of the “PRIVATE GROUP” to access this information due to the confidentiality of some items.
The lists are sorted 3 ways – By GUIDE NUMBER, by GUIDE NAME and by SUBGROUP to make finding what you’re searching for easier. Let us know if you are unable to access the A-Z Guides.
