Support for people living with cancer
Updated 20 October 2020
Help and information for people living with cancer
The Wales Cancer Alliance is a group of 20 cancer charities working together to make things better for people affected by cancer and their loved ones. The current pandemic of Covid-19 is no doubt making many feel worried and anxious, to support you through this we’ve produced a list of organisation’s whose support lines and information can really help.
You might want to just have a chat with a listening ear, find out more about benefits and financial support or you might have a question about your cancer that’s unrelated to Covid-19. The important thing is to know that we are there, and we are all working together to support you.
