Jalon Valley Help and Cancer Care, both keen to improve the service to cancer patients and their families, have decided to jointly invest in a new project, Cancer Care The Valleys, to be based at the Jalon Valley Help Drop-in Centre ´Animo´ in Alcalali.
Both Charities have long since recognised that there is a need to provide a more localised and accessible opportunity for those diagnosed with cancer to discuss their worries and concerns with a medically qualified practitioner. The two Charities are already working with a number of patients in the Valley and the intention is to expand and enhance the services currently provided by Cancer Care and in doing so complement those services provided by Jalon Valley Help.
This new venture will be formally launched at a Charity Concert, ´Showtime´, featuring the Entertainers, to be held at the Casa Cultura in Benissa on the evening of Thursday 7th April. The weekly Cancer Drop-in Service will commence at Ánimo on the following Thursday 14th April from 11.30 am to 1.30 pm. If you or any member of your family feel that you would benefit from the advice and support on offer, or just want some reassurance and the opportunity to talk, please feel free to drop in for a chat. Alternatively perhaps you may need the assistance of the ´Lynwen Specialist Nurses´.
In case the Office is busy it might be preferable, although not essential, to arrange an appointment first by contacting Jayne on 722 684 093.
