I began volunteering at the Cancer Council SA in the hope that I would gain some valuable experience in health promotion and health education. Fortunately for me, at the time Kate had just begun working on the Country Cancer Support website. Having grown up in the city you take for granted the accessibility and availability of services, and for me it was definitely eye opening to see the number of challenges that rural patients face on a daily basis. It has been hugely rewarding and a great honour to be able to work on this project. I am proud to have been able to be involved in such a great resource and I hope that you are able to gain something from it too.
