Cancer Support UK has formed a new collaborative partnership with the Yorkshire Cancer Community, for the benefit of people in Yorkshire affected by cancer.
Helen, 45, was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2021 and says that without doubt, early detection of her cancer saved her life. “I am also lucky to be surrounded by the most supportive family and friends. As I sat in the consultation room trying to take in what I had just been told, I had no idea just how much my world was going to change. Helen puts her humour and positivity to good use on social media, by sharing her cancer journey in the hope that it will inspire others.
As human beings, we like certainties, but with cancer there are no guarantees that our cancer won’t come back. Read our tips on how to cope.
With your help we can be there for adults and children undergoing treatment or recovering from cancer. In 2020 we helped 4,952 people during their cancer journey, and as a small charity who receive no government support, you are a vital part of our work.
At Cancer Support UK, we understand that it’s perfectly normal to be left with anxiety and concerns after treatment. When cancer treatment finally finishes, family and friends often expect cancer patients to feel better, but for many, it’s when they feel worst of all. Our Cancer Coach support groups can help.
Your story matters and we want to hear it
Personal stories and experiences are an important way of raising awareness of the work that we do to support cancer patients both practically and emotionally.
We value your voice in helping let more people know about our services. If you have ordered one of our Cancer Kits or participated in our Cancer Coach programme and would like to share your story publicly, we would love to hear from you.
