Thank you so much for your support and donation!
Cancer Central is a new platform. It has been created to provide a central source of information for those affected by cancer and those who care for them. Avril Chester founded the organisation after facing first-hand the many challenges in finding targeted information, resources and support during her own cancer journey. Whatever the question or needs, Cancer Central aims to signpost businesses, services and charities - locally, nationally and online - who can offer advice and support.
Over time, Cancer Central will become the go-to place to find cancer support. Support includes but is not limited to, benefits advice, insurance products, counselling, complementary therapy, respite care, hats, wigs, lingerie, skincare, financial help, nutrition advice, local societies or communities, meals on wheels, books, blogs, forums, local hospital taxi services – all based on geographical location and cancer type.
The platform is being created with ‘Ave’ your cancer virtual assistant. Recent feature launches include integration with the NHS and the capability to answer cancer questions (where answers exist in NHS information). Ask Ave your cancer questions to help continue to shape her training, there is still plenty to learn!
All funds received will enable us to continue to grow Cancer Central and help our goal to support more people affected by cancer.
