What's new on Cancer Care Map this week

 
 

We are adding more and more services and organisations to Cancer Care Map every week and now have over 765 listings across the UK. Here are just a few of the latest you can find out about.

Hope For Tomorrow is an organisation that runs Mobile Cancer Care Units. They provide mobile treatments across 34 UK locations. The service work in partnership with the NHS Trusts visiting different locations each day. The charity's aim is to reduce the miles patients have to travel, the associated parking cost and waiting times for treatment, as well as helping to ease capacity challenges at hospital trusts.

Bounce Back is a support group run by and for local women in Stratford Upon Avon who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. They welcome those who are newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment or at any other point in their cancer journey. They are a small, friendly group of women who have come together to share experiences and emotional support.

The Lewis Foundation visits hospitals in the East Midlands every week with gifts for people to pick what they would like during treatment free of charge. The gifts are available to all adult cancer patients receiving treatment in hospital.The aim is to keep people occupied during treatment, take their mind off thinking about cancer and give people something nice to look forward to. The gift packs include things such as puzzle books, radios and model craft kits and more.
