If you look after someone with cancer, you may not think of yourself as a carer. You may say ‘I'm just being their husband, partner, daughter or friend’. Yet the support you provide is vital. Whether it's helping with shopping, taking them to the hospital or just being there when they need to talk.
We understand how looking after someone with cancer can completely take over your life. We know that without the right support, providing this care can have a big impact on you – physically, emotionally and financially. We’re here to give you the support you may need to make sure no one faces cancer alone.
