Helen Rollason Cancer Charity is dedicated to supporting people whose lives are touched by cancer. Our support centres in Essex, London and Hertfordshire are vital in helping people living with cancer. The centres offer a range of complementary therapies to patients in an environment of peace and tranquility, including counselling, reflexology, aromatherapy, manual lymphatic drainage and support groups. The centres are for patients with all types of cancer at all stages, whether newly diagnosed or longer term, throughout and after completion of treatment. Founded in 1999, the charity is the legacy of BBC broadcaster Helen Rollason, whose vision was:
“Good quality of life while coping with cancer is the most important gift a sick person can receive. It should be available to everyone.”
Providing support for cancer patients’ emotional well-being alongside their medical treatment continues to be at the core of the charity’s mission.
We also support research and clinical drugs trials relating to cancer with an annual grant made to Broomfield Hospital and The North Middlesex Hospital.
