It is our primary objective to do everything in our power to help those living in poverty to overcome the financial burdens that tend to stem from serious illness and the associated treatments.
Research shows cancer has an average monthly cost of £760 and can send some patients into financial freefall. Indeed, the average Welsh family could not cope with the cost of cancer.
Extra costs include travel to and from hospital appointments; an increase in household bills due to being at home more and feeling the cold after treatment; and paying for extra support with help at home.
Many also have to cut down their working hours or stop working altogether because they are too unwell, resulting in a significant loss of income.
When you're diagnosed with a serious illness, the last thing you need to be worrying about how to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head. You do not have to do this alone - there is help out there.
If you, or indeed someone you know, need our support, please contact us as appropriate and you will be introduced to a friendly member of staff that will be able to answer any questions you may have.
