About us

CANCER CARD® is a national charity whose main aim is to assist the NHS by supporting everyone who is affected by cancer, enabling them to directly access relevant information, services and support, all in one place.

What we're all about

Our online support hub is a one stop shop for personalised support and information sharing for cancer patients, partners, families, friends, professionals and employers as they navigate the world of cancer.

Our intuitive search facility provides a personalised experience for each user as they search our directory of UK cancer support charities and services and find valuable support and advice from 'someone like me' in our community section.

'Helping you find the support you need when cancer affects your life.'

Our history

CANCER CARD® was founded by Jen Hardy, an Edinburgh resident who has stage 4 incurable breast cancer. Jen was diagnosed on 18th October 2017 after having a CT scan to find out the cause of her paralysed vocal cord. Whilst searching for more cancer support, Jen noticed there was no single place to go that listed the hundreds of different services, support providers, information channels and free treats. It was this realisation that prompted Jen to start CANCER CARD®, creating a single place for anyone affected by cancer to find access to the support they need.
