What we do for people affected by cancer
Cancer Care Parcel provides information, comfort and support to those affected by cancer, including friends, family and colleagues.
The team at Cancer Care Parcel all have experience with cancer, either as a patient, survivor, family member or friend.
The Cancer Care Parcels
We provide the opportunity to buy friends, colleagues and loved ones gifts they need.
Our gifts are useful appropriate and thoughtful.
We have an advisory board to suggest appropriate items and sometimes companies partner with us to supply their products (which we take at our discretion).
Everyone who receives a cancer care parcel is given access to our increasing number of resources, aimed at supporting all those affected by cancer.
Using profit to support the community
Cancer Care Parcel spends a lot of time writing and sourcing articles to benefit the cancer community.
Our primary aim is to provide some insight into what people are going through when they have cancer, with advice on
- what to say and do
- what not to say or do
- which products may or may not be suitable as gifts
We also include news items and updates on research plus personal stories. You can see our articles at www.cancercareparcel.co.uk/talking-cancer
With our communities help, we have compiled a Cancer Resources List
The Cancer Resources list is a constantly growing resource of sites which have further information regarding specific cancers. The aim of the Cancer Resource List page is to provide an extensive list of information regarding cancer diagnosis, fundraising, prognosis, support, awareness, treatment, campaigns and research. If there are resources that we are missing from this page, or you have any suggestions (if you want us to change anything we are happy to), please do contact us and let us know. We are very happy to add all appropriate resources.
Supporting local and national events
We support local and national events by posting them on this site plus on our extensive social media, these include:
Please contact us if you would like us to post your event.
We are also in the process of
* putting together an information leaflet/book for friends, family and carers discussing how to talk and provide support to people with cancer .
*establishing a Youtube channel where experts discuss their research,
*we also aim to use profit to supply parcels to people in hospital and hospices
