Cancer Support in the West
We want to ensure and encourage people who have been affected by cancer to seek and find the help they need, whether that is spiritual support, counselling, complementary therapies or financial advice – if there is an issue that you are concerned about, organisations are out there to help you.
There are a range of organisations that provide Cancer Support in the West. We are very grateful for these organisations for the important role they play providing emotional and often practical support to people when they receive a cancer diagnosis, throughout treatment and after finishing treatment.
