Member Profile - Weston Park Cancer Charity
12th May 2021
One in two of us will face cancer at some point in our lives. Directly or indirectly, we can all expect cancer to change everything for us one day, and when it does, Weston Park Cancer Charity is here to change everything too.
Its services, advice, therapies and support services are for patients and the family and friends close to them, helping everyone affected to live with and beyond cancer. The funds they raise also support vital, pioneering research and clinical trials led by the exceptional medical experts at Weston Park Cancer Centre. The charity aims to care in every sense for patients and family members, with them at every step, for free.

Covid-19 makes cancer even tougher. But Weston Parks support services continue, even when their centre is closed. Their helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm. When you call they are here to help with;
- Advice from healthcare professionals, if you want to discuss symptoms or treatment
- Legal and financial advice including information about benefits which you may be eligible for
- A listening ear, if you’re feeling low, need emotional support or just want to talk to someone
It’s free, confidential and open to everyone - whether you are a patient, carer, family member, friend or colleague – they are here for you.
If there’s anything else you need – just call on 0114 553 3330. If they can’t help you they can direct you to others who can. The most important thing is that you don’t try to get through this alone – help is just a call away.
