Around the country with Cancer Care Map

 
 

Last year we sent Andy West around the country to visit some of the organisations helping make life better for people living with cancer across the UK. We thought you might like to take a look at some of the films he made and meet some of the people offering help and support to those most in need.

First stop was Milton Keynes where Andy met with the people behind Patient Haircare, MK Prostate Cancer Support and Carers MK.

Then it was up to Cambridge where he visited the Maggie's Centre, the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre and nutritional therapist Amanda Ryan.

On next to Liverpool to see the volunteers at The Lyndale Centre, the Sunflowers Centre and the UTS Foundation.

 

Further north he visited Newcastle meeting the wonderful people at Daft As A Brush, Let's Face It and the lovely Joanne at Fighting All Cancers Together.

Finally back down in London Andy visited Dimbleby Cancer Care at Guy's Cancer Centre as well as Cancer Black Care and the Asian Women Cancer Group.

We loved getting to meet everyone in the videos. Thank you to everyone for taking part. And of course, to find out more about any of the organisation featured about, go to the search page and find them on our map.
