DORSET CANCER CARE FOUNDATION continue to assist people with cancer throughout Dorset in a personal way to meet their specific needs.

They have provided a range of support from the provision of grants for shoes and clothing, surgical bras and prosthetics, transport costs, appliances, childcare and domestic assistance, to help with accommodation expenses – often a major worry when someone is undergoing treatment and unable to work.

The Betty Hyams legacy has enabled them to launch the “Betty bus” which offers counselling and support throughout Dorset covering remote parts of the County.

The Memorial garden at Bournemouth Hospital which opened in May this year was also provided for by the legacy.

Do contact them if you think they can help you, forms are easy to complete and applications looked at quickly:
