Cancer Support Programme
Every year there are over a third of a million new diagnosis of cancer in the UK. That means that around a thousand people find out they have cancer every day.
The good news is that more people are living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer.
The Beth Johnson Foundation understands that a diagnosis of cancer can have a devastating impact that affects every part of a person’s life.  It isn’t just a medical condition, it can also affect a persons’ mental health, relationships, work, finances, hobbies, interests – it can completely change everything a person has previously taken for granted.
We can help by providing help and support to complement health and clinical services.  We are here for all adults affected by cancer including, partners, family members, carers and close friends. Our support is based around the person and what they need to support them.  We look at every aspect of how cancer has affected your life beyond the medical diagnosis.
Around World Cancer Day, there will be a lot of press coverage about cancer and raising awareness of its incidence, effects and the resources needed for treatment.  We want to tell everyone in Staffordshire who is affected by cancer that we are here to help, please just get in touch.
We would also like to appeal for more volunteers.  We have a small team of staff and rely on volunteers to help us support people affected by cancer through home visits and telephone support. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact us for further information.  We will be running training for new volunteers over the coming weeks.
