Supporting local people touched by cancer
Dereham Cancer Care
welcome to Dereham Cancer Care
Support & Information Centre
Our Centre is run by Volunteers, who offer support, friendship and information to cancer patients, their families and carers, indeed anyone whose life is touched by cancer in the Dereham area. Visit our trained Volunteer Befrienders for a coffee and a chat; some of whom have had cancer themselves and have experienced what you may be going through, others have lost a loved one to cancer and are now here to support you. We are here to help you on your journey with cancer.
Extensive literature from Macmillan Cancer Support is available to you: explaining cancer types, various treatment options, living with cancer, nutrition, well being, and helpful advice on complimentry therapies are all available. Leaflet information on various support and backup services is available for both patients and carers.
We offer lending of books, leaflets and equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, rubber rings and Chillow Pillows for patients. The Living with Cancer ‘Health Creation‘ pack produced by Macmillan Publications is available on loan through Our Centre.
Appointments with our qualified therapist for Reflexology and Indian head massage can be arranged at Our Centre. Our Charity sponsors treatment sessions for cancer patients and their carers. This service is also offered to those recently bereaved who have lost a loved one to cancer.
