Helen Rollason Cancer Charity
The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity is dedicated to championing quality of life for everyone living with or affected by Cancer. We are here to support men and women with all types of cancer at all stages; newly diagnosed, throughout and post treatment, as well as their wider support network of family, friends and carers. We do this through the provision of support centres, complementary therapies, information and advice and awarding grants for clinical trials. Our services are delivered free of charge to support cancer patients’ emotional well-being alongside their medical treatment. We focus on offering these services in non-clinical environments to promote a safe, peaceful, relaxing setting across the Essex, London and Hertfordshire regions.
Founded in 1999, the charity is the legacy of BBC broadcaster Helen Rollason, whose vision was:
“Good quality of life while coping with cancer is the most important gift a sick person can receive. It should be available to everyone.”
Our support centres are at the heart of our vision of enabling quality of life for everyone living with or affected by cancer. The centres offer a range of complementary therapies to patients in an environment of peace and tranquillity, including counselling, reflexology, aromatherapy, manual lymphatic drainage and support groups.
The grants we award (currently to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford and The North Middlesex Hospital) support the provision of clinical trials, which are focussed on developing new cancer drugs and treatments that increase quality of life for patients.
