About Cancer Support France Nord

Cancer Support France Nord

is a voluntary, not for profit organisation  founded in 2008 and is part of the Cancer Support France network of affiliated nonprofit associations.

We support people who live in Brittany, Normandie and the Mayenne.

Its mission is to support English speaking people, their friends and families that have been affected in some way by cancer.  The commitment of all our volunteers is to provide information, translation, emotional and practical support to enhance the quality of life for the cancer patient and their families. 

We provide training for our volunteers and encourage an environment where all individuals feel valued and respected.

We are really fortunate to have a variety of people with different skills in the group and now have 18 trained Active Listeners to provide support to individuals and 20 volunteers to make tea/coffee and light lunches in the day centre.
