"The more organisations that register with cancer.JE the more helpful this site will be for those that need it."
Lorna Pirozzolo, cancer.JE Founder
These are charities with the specific remit of helping anyone affected by cancer. This can be cancer patients; their loved ones; employers and various types of professionals.
Charities - Other
These are charities that are not cancer charities but provide services often of use to people affected by cancer.
Such charities may have a remit of providing mental health support; pain support; financial aid etc.
If you are a charity in Jersey and are unsure whether you would be considered for inclusion in the directory please contact us to discuss.
Jersey has a number of support groups and peer groups that meet regularly. Some of these are formed around subjects that are of relevance to people affected by cancer.
We welcome these groups to contact us to discuss inclusion in the directory.
Cancer can affect the body in a huge variety of ways. As such cancer patients sometimes need to buy products that they would never normally buy. To ensure cancer.JE provide as full a service as possible the directory includes local retailers that provide these products.
Such products include mobility aids; prostheses; sick bags etc.
If your business supplies products that are of use to cancer patients then you are welcome to apply for inclusion in the directory.
Cost of Services
To be considered for inclusion it is expected that your services or products will be free at source to those affected by cancer. Two automatic exceptions are made for:
- local retailers supplying products of use to cancer patients;
- organisations supplying services to employers and professionals.
Other exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the cancer.JE committee.
At cancer.JE we take seriously the responsibility of providing information to cancer patients and their loved ones. We understand the importance of doing our best to ensure we do not inadvertently cause harm with the information we provide. Because of this there are some organisations and groups that will not be considered for entry in the Directory.
Organisations and groups that will not be included are those that:
- offer treatments or cures not currently supported by conventional medicine;
- promote these alleged treatments or cures to cancer patients;
- promote conspiracy theories about cancer and its treatment;
- encourage cancer patients to ignore the advice and treatment given by their medical team.
N.B. cancer.JE draw a clear distinction between complementary therapy and alternative treatment. Many organisations offer free complementary therapy to help cancer patients with their general wellbeing.
