We believe it helps to talk about cancer
When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they may experience feelings of shock, anger, or confusion. Even the most supportive family members, friends, or employers cannot understand exactly how it feels to go through a cancer journey.
A programme like this is one way for individuals to interact with other people in similar circumstances.
“I had the opportunity to explore my personal experience of cancer with others who became friends. I felt heard and came away feeling encouraged and supported.”
About the service
This programme is designed for people who have had a cancer diagnosis. Run by experienced Cancer Focus NI facilitators over a five-week timeframe, it is delivered in a variety of locations across Northern Ireland.
It is thanks to generous donations that we can continue to deliver vital complimentary cancer support services to thousands of people and families each year.
We keep all donations local and invest 82pence in every £1 directly towards the delivery of our services.
