We help people throughout Suffolk before during and after cancer, we are your local cancer charity with all monies raised staying in Suffolk for the benefit of the local community. We work in partnership with Ipswich Hospital Trust at our John Le Vay Cancer Information Centre (JLVCIC) in the oncology department of the hospital. The centre was built with your generous donations of over £500,000 in 2004. Cancer Campaign in Suffolk (CCiS) continues to fund the centre and the complementary therapists to enable us to offer free treatments for those with a cancer diagnosis.
The aims of the charity are to improve access to high quality information, education as well as providing vital support services including financial, emotional, dietary, care and complementary therapies to people who have a cancer diagnosis and their carers in Suffolk. We work very closely with the staff and volunteers at the centre and our cancer specialist educator Debbie is there every Wednesday. Whilst the JLVCIC provides much needed clinical support, we also recognise the huge importance of raising awareness, how to recognise and act on the signs and symptoms of cancer.
Our awareness programme gives you Knowledge for Life covering not only the signs and symptoms but also how to self examine, life style choices and awareness of specific cancers. The earlier cancer is detected the more successful the treatment. The awareness programme is available for businesses, local community groups, schools, colleges and the university. This knowledge could save your life if you would like further details please click here.
Cancer Campaign in Suffolk is supported entirely by voluntary donations; we are not affiliated to any large national organisations, but exist to support the local community. Every penny donated to the campaign stays here in Suffolk for the benefit of all residents
