As the dust starts to settle after the lockdown announcement, we all begin to face the reality of a few weeks, maybe even months, at home.
Everybody’s situation is different, the challenges of living alone are very different to those of large families suddenly locked down together. One thing that's undeniable though is that those affected by cancer are certainly impacted more than most by the coronavirus.
It’s important now more than ever that we pull together as a Community. The not so breaking news we’re delivering today … is that this is already happening! Check out just some of the many examples below.
