CancerWise aspires to be an enabling, compassionate community for people with cancer and those who care for them. Our Drop-in Support Centre is based in Chichester, West Sussex, and we offer support and information to anyone in West Sussex and East Hampshire who is concerned about cancer. Through counselling, complementary therapies or emotional support, we can help you through and beyond cancer.
At CancerWise, we offer a ‘Living Well with the Impact of Cancer’ course which is accredited by national cancer survivorship charity, Penny Brohn Cancer Care. The next course runs on the on Thursday June 9th and Wednesday June 15th.
Many people come through the door of our Drop-in Centre for so many reasons and many have stories to tell about how CancerWise has helped them in their fight against cancer. Many, but not all, have been successful. It is reassuring to know too, that there is support from the professionals in health care as well as those who are suffering with cancer too. “CancerWise has been invaluable to me over the past six months. Somewhere to pop in for a friendly chat, ask advice, share information and experience relaxing therapies. It has really helped me cope with my treatment and feel human again”
It was a shock to be diagnosed with breast cancer, and right from the start CancerWise helped give us the mental strength to fight it with their constant support and down to earth advice, the friendly coffee mornings are good fun, it is a brilliant place
I am so grateful to CancerWise for all the support they have given me, information they have provided and local resources they have put me in touch with. What would I have done without you over the past five years?
After my fiancé died of breast cancer I returned to the South Coast to live and I was then myself diagnosed with cancer. I have found the kind help and advice given by CancerWise to be invaluable. Just one small example; the relaxing yoga class which I thoroughly recommend. I encourage all to support CancerWise.
I have had many patients who have benefited from the services you provide. They found it accessible and very relevant to their needs. I am very happy for any of my patients to try any of these complimentary and additional measures to help them during their cancer journey.
