The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity was founded in 1999 and is the legacy of the BBC broadcaster Helen Rollason, MBE. Helen herself was a resident of Shenfield, Brentwood.
The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity is dedicated to championing quality of life for everyone living with or affected by cancer. We are here to support men and women with all types of cancer at all stages; newly diagnosed, throughout and post treatment, as well as their wider support network of family, friends and carers. We do this through the provision of support centres offering complementary therapies.
Our services are delivered free of charge to support cancer patients’ emotional well-being alongside their medical treatment. We focus on offering these services in non-clinical environments to promote a safe, peaceful, relaxing setting across the Essex, London and Hertfordshire regions. The work we do really does make a difference:
“The staff are all very welcoming and supportive. Sitting in the lounge before and after treatment is all part of the experience. Talking to other clients and staff or just sitting having ‘me time’, is all part of the therapy. It is so peaceful and relaxing I do not know what I would have done without the charity”.
“This is a fabulous service, one that is accepting, supportive and a peaceful place. Thank you from the depths of my heart”.
The charity receives no Government or NHS funding and relies on corporate donations, our retail shops, events, grants and its fantastic fundraising supporters to continue services.
