A cancer diagnosis is one of the toughest journey’s many of us will ever face, and every year in Scotland there is an alarming 13,000 cancer cases. CLAN'S therapy sessions help over 6000 people every year to cope with their feelings of anxiety, anger, and depression to hold them through this period of distress. They understand the impact a cancer diagnosis has is not only on the person diagnosed but also their family and friends and helped over 400 families last year alone. Many people with cancer may feel a lack of certainty about what the future holds for them. By delivering over 30,000 hours of support every year, Clan Cancer Support helps to reduce pain and stress by proving comfort to those affected by this heart-breaking disease.
