Coping with Cancer Leicestershire and Rutland

Coping with Cancer exists to help the people of Leicestershire and Rutland cope with the practical and emotional problems, which can arise following a cancer diagnosis. We encourage a positive attitude, with emphasis on the quality of life for each individual affected by cancer.

We offer a range of services, which can be tailored to an individual or family’s needs and requirements. These may be one-to-one services such as counselling or befriending, or in a group setting through our various activities and specific support groups.

Coping with Cancer Leicestershire and Rutland received £3,000 from Ruth Wragg, who won the Community Builder Award, to provide people with cancer and their carers with relaxing therapies such as reflexology and massage.
