Affected by Cancer?
Would you like to talk to someone who has been there?
Our Dorset Cancer Advocacy project can support you during investigations and after you have received your cancer diagnosis to understand what it means. We can explain the treatment options in words you are familiar with. We can discuss with you what the effects might be and suggest how you might cope with them. Most importantly we can explore with you how you feel about your situation and what you would most like to happen.
Our volunteers are 50+ and know how cancer can affect older people because they have been there, having had cancer themselves or supported a relative or friend.
We aim to offer independent support from caring peers who are trained to empower you. The volunteers can support you in hospital or at home and can accompany you to appointments.
If you or someone you know would benefit from this service please call our Information Gateway on 0300 111 3303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
