1 in 3 Cancer Support

 

Who we are:

The group was formed in January of 2008 because, after my breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 42, I discovered that none of the services that were readily available in Belfast were in place anywhere in East Antrim. I decided to try to address this issue, and so my sister and I formed 1 in 3 Cancer Support. We began with a few extremely helpful volunteers (most of whom are still with us) meeting on a monthly basis, and we are now a fully-fledged registered charity. A true East Antrim charity - we serve only the people of the East Antrim area, and all of our funding / sponsorship has come from the East Antrim area - both from very generous businesses and individual people.

 

 

 

 

The following is what we do:

We try to let patients and their families in the East Antrim Area to get the services they want locally, so we offer

the following local services free:

  • Beauty vouchers for Simply Hair & Beauty
  • Counselling with Lynda Graham Counselling
  • Flower deliveries with The Little Flower Shack & Victoriana
  • Photography with Colin Metcalfe photography

 

We also try to help patients and their families with practical matters, by helping to pay for the following:

  • Cleaners
  • Gardeners
  • Costs for hospital appointments
  • And for those on the road to recovery we offer help with the following:
  • Costs of night classes
  • Home study courses.

 

(*The above are offered where applicable, and certain restrictions apply, we are a small charity - but we help as much as we can).
