Sudbury Area Cancer Support Group

A New Initiative for Adults with Cancer and their Carers

  • Are you or someone you care for affected by cancer?
  • Would you like support, friendship and information through this difficult time?

The Sudbury Area Cancer Support Group got off to an excellent start with 20 patients and carers attending it’s first meetings in March and April. A team of cancer survivors, healthcare professionals and volunteers are working together to provide a local support group in a relaxing environment where people with similar problems can share experiences,  obtain information from a variety of sources and take part in social activities. The group is open to anyone affected by cancer whether undergoing or having completed treatment, and their carers.

Meetings are free and open to anyone able to attend whether from Sudbury, Great Cornard, Clare, Long Melford, Glemsford, Lavenham, Bures, Hadleigh, or Halstead and North Essex Villages.
