Why Cancer Support
Cancer impacts nearly all of us in some way or another, whether it is through someone we know, we've lost, or love. This is a cause close to many of our hearts which is why we're raising awareness, sparking conversations and bringing solidarity through Recognised Letters - 26 initials to recognise those we love and stand with them through the hard times.
Built on the grounds of specialist NHS hospitals, Maggie's 23 centres are warm and welcoming places with expert staff to help people live well with cancer.
They are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well, places where qualified experts provide emotional support, places to meet other people, places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea. They understand the importance of architecture and design on your physical and emotional health, which is why their centres are peaceful, calming places to be. Everyone is welcome, you don’t need an appointment, just come in at any time and their support is free.
Look Good Feel Better
Look Good Feel Better is an independent national cancer support charity providing a unique service that helps boost the confidence and self-esteem of women, men and young adults undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.
The workshops are led by trained volunteers including skincare and make-up artists and local barbers or groomers for men’s groups. The workshops provide an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation as well as learning useful skills to help manage the side-effects of cancer treatment.
