“Our mission is to empower people to help themselves, by actively promoting self-help, mutual support and equal access to all cancer and care service in our locality Leicestershire and Rutland.
We offer impartial and confidential guidance, practical and emotional support to anyone affected by cancer; to those diagnosed, their family members and carers. We also provide an opportunity to have views and concerns heard about cancer services in our area and will consider how else we can better our services to cater for those service users who require them”
Sue Young Cancer Support provides cancer support for all, practical and emotional to local cancer patients from the time a diagnosis is made. The diagnosis has a huge impact on family members and carers too, so this is why Sue Young Cancer Support extends support in all services to family members and carers, providing a lifeline during a time of emotional and physical upheaval for all those affected by such a diagnosis.
