Owls charity partner Weston Park Cancer Charity are reminding supporters the organisation is still actively providing maximum aid to people living with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The last few months will no doubt have been an anxious time for anyone coping with ill-health and Weston Park are keen to promote its ‘We Care’ social group.
Samantha Dixon, CEO of Weston Park Cancer Charity, said: “Right now, many patients and their families aren’t just facing cancer. The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted so much of the treatment and support that cancer patients and their families rely on.
“Understandably this is a very anxious time for anyone affected by cancer, which is why it’s our job to care in every sense for patients and their families struggling with the practical, financial and emotional challenges as a result of the pandemic.”
One of the key ways Weston Park Cancer Charity is offering support is through the creation of ‘We Care’ where healthcare professionals offer regular catch-up calls to help people through long periods of isolation or shielding.
Since launching in March the cancer support team have already made hundreds of calls to members of the public.
Samantha added: “The most important thing is that you don’t try to get through alone when you need help – it’s just a call away.
It’s free, confidential and open to anyone living with cancer or supporting someone living with cancer, not just Weston Park patients.”
