We are a source of support

We are the experts, the nurses, the campaigners, the fundraisers We are a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It's not only patients who live with cancer, we also helpcarers, families and communities.

We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. We fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres. But we give so much more than medical help.

People need practical support at home, so we provide anything from some precious time off for a carer, to a lift to hospital. People need emotional support, so we listen, advise and share information through our cancer support specialists, website and trained professionals.

People need financial help to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, so we give benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs. Together we listen, we learn, we act to help people live with cancer
