About Cancer Support Services

Cancer Support Services was founded and registered as a Charity (No. 316) on April 17, 1996 and provides a haven where patients and their families are given an understanding ear, a compassionate smile and, most importantly, confidentiality and a place where they can feel free of their fears and have many of their concerns addressed.

Cancer Support Services is committed through a spirit of volunteerism to the care of persons with cancer and to bring comfort and support to the affected relatives and dependents.

Cancer Support Services relies on the generosity of it’s patrons, sponsors and the wider general public to fund the wide range of services it provides for patients and their families.
