Somerset Colorectal Camcer Patient Support Group
We are a self help group for people with Colorectal Cancer (often known as bowel cancer), their families and carers.
We are here for anyone who lives in Somerset or who is receiving their treatment in the county.
We know that it can be a frightening time when you are told that you have cancer. There is a lot of information to digest and treatment options to consider which can be difficult to understand. We know what it is like to have your life turned upside down and not know where to turn, with that the feeling of losing control that can be frightening.
The aim of the Somerset Bowel Cancer Charity is to help you or your loved ones understand your journey through your cancer care. We aim to do this by providing information and contact with supportive group members. We also raise awareness of bowel cancer locally through the various media, presence at local events and fundraising with the aim of improving local treatment, care and support.
