New cancer support programme launched in Staffordshire

The Beth Johnson Foundation has launched a new cancer support programme in Staffordshire.

Funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, the Staffordshire Cancer Support Programme or CaSP as it will be known - is free to use and provdies social, emotional and practical support to cancer patients and their loved ones during or after treatment.

Cancer affects 1 in 3 of us and by 2020, that figure will rise to 1 in 2.

The service is available to anyone over 18 who has or has had cancer, as well as to their family had carers who may also need support.

Link workers from the Beth Johnson Foundation will help patients and families with any issues they have, so that they can concentrate on dealing with the cancer and any treatment.

For more information, people are urged to call 01782 - 844036 or visit www.bjf.org.uk.
