Practical information, advice and support through cancer treatment

Support Line

When you’re going through cancer treatment, you’re bound to have questions, queries and concerns. Our experienced nurses can offer advice on treatment, side-effects, and anything else that’s on your mind. Call our free Support Line on 0808 808 1010 or use our Ask the Nurse form to put your thoughts down in writing.

Cancer Callback

Sometimes it’s nice to have some extra support  as you go through treatment. Which is why we don’t just wait for the phone to ring. Our nurses can provide that extra support you during your treatment and beyond  with regular calls through our Cancer Callback service. You’ll get a series of regular calls from one of our dedicated nurses who can answer questions and offer advice about absolutely anything to do with your diagnosis or treatment.

Information
Our range of cancer information pages can help you understand more about your cancer treatment, and the possible side effects and how to manage them.

Financial support through cancer treatment

Going through cancer treatment can have an effect on your finances – either by reducing your income or increasing your costs associated with travelling for appointments, or having to make changes to your home or lifestyle.

Grants and benefits

Our team of Benefits Advisors can explain what financial support is available whilst you’re going through cancer treatment, and guide you through the complex benefits system. Contact our Advice team through our free Support Line on 0808 808 1010 or through our Ask the Advisor form.

Sing with Us

Our Sing with Us choirs are for anyone affected by cancer, but many of our members are going through cancer treatment. It’s a great way to lift your spirits, reduce anxiety and depression and meet new people who understand your experiences.

You don’t need to read music, or be a great singer. Just be willing to have a go and join in. There’s no commitment to come every week so if you have times you’re not feeling up to it due to treatment, that’s fine. Find out more about our Sing with Us choirs.

Our research has shown that singing can have real benefits for people with cancer. Watch our video to find out more about the science behind singing.

Cancer treatment closer to home

Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can be one of the most daunting aspects of cancer. Our Mobile Support Units bring chemotherapy closer to home to save patients the worry of travel and parking, and the cost of transport. Our Units visit a range of communities across South Wales and England, but you’ll need to speak to your healthcare professional to see whether your treatment type is compatible.

If you or someone you love has been affected by cancer, our free cancer Support Line is there for you. Just call 0808 808 1010
