COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.
People with an impaired immune system (including due to cancer treatment) are at higher risk of severe illness due to coronavirus. If you are in this group, take extra care to protect yourself from coronavirus. Encourage your family and friends to do this too.
Other general recommendations on preventing infection during your treatment continue to apply – e.g. avoid contact with others who you know to have an infection.
Continue to attend for your scheduled medical care.
We have many volunteers involved in different events and projects
Impact of Volunteers.
As a small organisation our volunteers play a crucial role in helping us pursue our mission. Their valuable time and expertise is greatly appreciated.
Be it lending an hour or two at our annual patient conference or local fundraising events or flag day collections. Those volunteering and helping us in our fight against cancer find that not only can it be a fun and rewarding experience, but also through some of our events it can offer beneficial work experience.
You are very welcome to join one of our local fundraising groups.
