Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey offers free practical, emotional and social support to people in Jersey with any type of cancer and at any stage, along with their families and friends.
During 2015, we provided 2,651 occasions of support, to Islanders affected by cancer, offering opportunities to simply talk to one of our trained advisers, receive information or benefit from one of our complementary therapies. 17% of these occasions were to new patients or their families, who had recently experienced cancer, reflecting the ongoing number of new diagnoses in Jersey, each year.
Our support has increased by 352% in the last five years, making The Oasis and our services even more important to people in Jersey living with cancer.
We exist to ensure anybody in Jersey touched by cancer, has the support and information they need to live well and not feel alone. We work in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to ensure high quality and comprehensive services are available to local people affected by cancer.
