Charis Cancer Care is a charity which supports people affected by cancer, their families and supporters at every stage of the journey, and any family member bereaved by Cancer. Moving forward after treatment can feel like a huge mountain to climb, and Charis Cancer Care aims to empower more men and women to live life with confidence. A huge, huge thank you to everyone who voted for us. This award means a lot to all our staff and volunteers.”
Complementary therapies are becoming increasingly popular in helping to reduce the side effects of cancer treatment. Used alongside conventional medical treatments prescribed by a doctor, they can help people with cancer to feel better and may improve their quality of life. They do not aim to cure the person's cancer. Instead they are used to help control symptoms such as pain and fatigue. Complementary therapies include massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, counselling, relaxation, meditation and visualisation. In addition, Charis group workshops which focus on Art, Craft, Bereavement, Relaxation, Walking, Mindfulness and Yoga are also extremely popular.
