    At Cancerkin we believe it is imperative to ‘treat the patient not just the cancer’. Our centre offers a secure and positive environment where we help patients and their families come to terms with the challenges brought about by a cancer diagnosis. We offer an extensive programme of support services, completely free of charge, to improve patient’s wellbeing: complementary therapies (e. G. Massage, yoga, art therapy); emotional support services (one-to-one and group support); a free breast cancer related Lymphoedema Clinic ; an information service, including patient library, website, e-newsletter and talks and lectures.

    We get no funding from the government or any other statutory bodies. At Cancerkin we aim to provide a reliable, encouraging and supportive framework, accessible to anyone affected by cancer regardless of ethnic background, location or financial situation.
