We are proud to be working with these charities, helping cancer patients receive the best possible help and support.
Paul's Cancer Support Centre in Wandsworth enables people affected by cancer, through community-based care and support, to find new strength, resilience and their own way of coping with the challenges cancer brings. The centre understands that people respond in different ways to the challenge of a life-threatening illness so it is important to meet each person and find out who they are, what their particular needs are, and how they have responded to the illness.
