I am dealing with & recovering from cancer

Cancer in the UK is a significant public health concern, affecting thousands of people and their families every year.

The country has a well-established healthcare system that offers comprehensive cancer care, including early detection, advanced treatments, and supportive services. Cancer research and innovation are priorities in the UK, leading to continuous improvements in diagnosis and treatment options. The National Health Service (NHS) provides vital support, offering cancer screenings and access to specialised medical professionals. Additionally, numerous charitable organisations work tirelessly to raise awareness, fund research, and provide assistance to cancer patients. While progress has been made in terms of prevention, early diagnosis, and survival rates, ongoing efforts are essential to enhance cancer care further, support patients, and ultimately find cures for various types of cancer in the UK.

These organisations may be able to assist and support you.
