The Gawler Cancer Foundation provides lifestyle-based educational retreats for people living with cancer and their support people. The Foundation's cancer self-help programs teach lifestyle practices which promote healing and help to improve quality of life and recovery outcomes. These programs complement medical treatments and complementary therapies that may be chosen as part of a treatment plan.

The Gawler Cancer Foundation's teachings are based around Seven Essential Elements: regular meditation, good nutrition, emotional healing, moderate exercise, effective support, power of mind and the quest for meaning. This active self-help approach complements any medical treatments or complementary therapies that may have been chosen as part of a treatment plan.
