Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is hard whatever time of the year but over the Christmas period it can be particularly difficult. However, thanks to CancerCare help is at hand.

The Lancaster based charity has been helping local cancer patients and their loved ones for over 30 years and currently provide a wide range of FREE professional support services including Counselling, dedicated Support Groups and Complementary therapies at their Kendal & Lancaster centres.

Alison Dixey, Head of Client Services & Development at CancerCare says;

“Christmas is usually a really busy time for many of us with loads of parties and family get togethers lined up. But if you have cancer or having cancer treatment, you might not feel up to it. It can also be a really stressful time for other family members too.”

"To help, CancerCare's Therapy team have put together some useful information on our blog  pages including  their Top 10 Coping Tips as well as other practical sources of support. And remember, if you need to talk to someone give us a call – our experienced team are here for you.”

Susie Bates from Kendal, a former CancerCare client says;

“CancerCare is there for you and for your family, at one of the most difficult times of your life. I have benefited hugely by being a member of this special family. There are times in our lives when we need all the extra love and support we can get!  Being told you have cancer is certainly one of those times! CancerCare is a safe and understanding haven for anyone going through a difficult time. All you need to do is give them a call.”
