Cavendish Cancer Care

11th February 2014

Cavendish Cancer Care, a local independent charity based in Sheffield, that offers support, counselling and a wide range of complementary therapies free of charge to anyone who is affected by cancer.

The service is also offered to the patient's carer and children because cancer affects families and not just the patient themselves. To do this they are reliant on the generosity and support of local businesses and people. Working in an integrated way with traditional NHS services means there is always a place where local people and their families can go to talk in confidence about their feelings and receive free sessions with professional counsellors, physiotherapists and complementary therapists. Over 1500 people each year benefit from the services provided by Cavendish Cancer Care and thanks to the tireless supporters who help fund their work, many more local people will continue to benefit from the unique and personalised service on offer. People like Nick, a Company Director of Totley -It's easy to get demoralised when you have cancer. But the Cavendish is the link between the hospital and your family. They can deal with you, make you relaxed, comfortable, so you're better at home. Without the Cavendish, there would've been a massive strain on my family.
