The James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer have today launched the Kidney Cancer Careline - 0330 111 2 333 a telephone helpline which provides help, advice, support and encouragement to kidney cancer patients, their carers and families.
The Kidney Cancer Careline is operated by a panel of cancer patients who can draw on their own experiences to support and encourage patients and their families during the difficult time following a diagnosis of kidney cancer.
The Kidney Cancer Careline provides the means for patients to make contact with someone who knows exactly how they feel; this understanding and empathy from other cancer patients can provide a great deal of comfort during their cancer journey.
The Kidney Cancer Careline can also provide advice about the process for accessing the latest treatments for kidney cancer, some of which are not available through the NHS, and can guide patients and their families through this process, as well as provide information about government funding schemes, such as the Cancer Drugs Fund.
