Welcome to Cavendish Cancer Care
Cavendish Cancer Care is a local Sheffield charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We believe no one should face cancer alone, so we provide emotional support through counselling and complementary therapies to the patient, their carer and their children. Our services are provided free of charge and we rely on the donations from supporters and help from volunteers to continue our work. We provide the support that local families deserve.
I never used to notice the weather or the trees. But now I get up in the morning and think to myself, ‘Welcome to another day on planet earth’.
The primary benefit was that it refocused me. I learnt how to vent the anger that was all bottled up. I mean, 7 weeks of radiotherapy and chemo and it’s got to come out. It’s essential.
I just loved how Anna would say, “Yesterday has gone. Put it behind you. Your problems are not your fault or your wife’s. Let it go.”
I enjoy life much better now than before the cancer.
I haven’t changed as a person, but cars … money … this and that, it doesn’t mean anything.
