Cancer Campaign in Suffolk work in partnership with the Ipswich Hospital Trust at our John Le Vay Cancer Information Centre (JLVCIC) in the oncology department at the hospital.
The centre was built using the generous donations of Suffolk residents with over £500,000 raised. The centre was opened in 2004 and continues to grow providing much needed services to people with cancer. Cancer Campaign in Suffolk (CCiS) continues to provide funding for the centre and the complementary therapists, which enables us to provide free treatments for those with a cancer diagnosis.
These treatments have become a vital part of recovery for people with cancer and are hugely appreciated by all that receive them. We work very closely with the staff and volunteers at the centre and our cancer specialist educator Debbie is there every Wednesday.
The centre provides complementary therapy treatments, clinical, emotional and financial support, information leaflets and the all important welcome drink.
The centre also offers participation in a survivorship course (HOPE) for patients after their treatment. The course covers self managing recovery, body image, fatigue, healthy eating, taking control and stress management. Please contact the centre for more details on 01473 715 748 or click here to download a leaflet.
Attached to the courses are other activities that you may be interested in. Follow the links below for more information:
