The DVD was produced under the technical guidance of Professor Richard Fox, AM. and overseen by the Cancer Council of Victoria.

A Helping Hand is a DVD resource designed to help people get the right information, when and where they want it and in their own time.

After 12 months production time, the DVD was finally launched on Sep 28th, 2004 at the MCG. The launch was attended by over 150 people comprising Board members, supporters, medical personnel and participants in the DVD.

This DVD is available for distribution free of charge to all Victorians. So far we have distributed over 8,000 copies. The New South Wales Cancer Council has also purchased 2,000 copies for distribution in NSW.

With cancer survival rates at an all time high, and with Australian clinical, diagnostics, healthcare and research teams that rank among the best in the world, this DVD will show people that there are many, many people ready to offer them A Helping Hand.

The DVD was launched on Sep 28th, 2004 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s wonderful Green Room.

The official launch of the DVD was compared by Graham (Smokey) Dawson. Well known TV presenter Mia Grieves who did most of the vocal introductions on the DVD, was an honoured guest as well. Introduced to the audience were some of the wonderful story-tellers of the DVD, those that were in remission from cancer and some still afflicted by it.
