Cavendish Cancer care believes that people affected by cancer have individual needs that cannot always be fully addressed by their health care providers and social support networks.
We offer a place for people to come to talk, and someone to help deal with the way cancer has affected you and your life. We are an independent charity established over 20 years ago giving free emotional support to people and their families affected by cancer in Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
Although the need for our services is recognised by the NHS we are not directly funded by them. We rely on the generosity of local people to continue offering our services on a free of charge basis.
People affected by cancer often feel a variety of emotions from fear, to anxiety, anger, depression and loneliness. We will work with you and help you to adjust to cancer, improve your emotional wellbeing and enrich your life.
While NHS care treats the disease, Cavendish Cancer Care takes care of the emotional affects of cancer, through complementary therapy and support for people and their families.
We can't cure cancer; we can help you cope with it.
