About us

At CANCER CARD®, our mission is to ensure no one faces cancer alone by providing a compassionate, personalised service that connects people affected by cancer with the right support, regardless of their background or circumstances. As an NHS-approved organisation, our resources are featured on the NHS inform website, Scotland's national health information service. This recognition underscores the quality and value of the information and guidance we provide to help you and your family access the support you need.

Cancer Card: Your Companion on the Cancer Journey

You're not alone in your cancer journey. Our founder, Jen Hardy, a stage 4 cancer patient herself, understands firsthand the struggles you may encounter. Her personal journey has shaped our mission: to connect you with the compassionate, personalised support you need, every step of the way.

We recognise that the burden of cancer is not borne equally. Health inequalities, deprivation, and geographic location can significantly impact your cancer journey and your ability to access support. That's why we're committed to ensuring that comprehensive, compassionate cancer support is available to you, regardless of your socioeconomic status or postcode.

Our comprehensive Cancer Support Directory is your go-to resource for finding the help you need, whether it's from well-known national organisations or smaller local initiatives. We've designed our directory to be accessible and inclusive, ensuring that you can find support no matter where you are or what barriers you may face.

We understand that every person's cancer experience is unique, which is why our directory includes a wide range of charities and services. From practical help to emotional support, you can find the assistance that best suits your individual needs. Our personalised recommendations make it easy for you to discover the support that will make a difference in your life.

Finding the right help shouldn't be a struggle, which is why we've made our directory completely free for all charities and non-profit organisations. This means that even the smallest, volunteer-run initiatives are at your fingertips, ready to provide you with the support you need.

At Cancer Card, we're committed to making sure that you can access the help that's right for you. Our aim is to make your journey as easy, compassionate, and personalised as possible, connecting you with the support you need every step of the way. With our directory, you're empowered to find the assistance that will make a difference in your life, ensuring that you never have to face cancer alone.
