What Sets Us Apart?

The Challenge of Fragmented Support

There is no single organisation that provides all the services cancer patients and their families require. This fragmentation can leave people navigating an already overwhelming diagnosis with the additional burden of trying to cobble together support from multiple disparate sources. It's a challenge that compounds the stress and uncertainty of the cancer journey, and one that we at Cancer Card are deeply committed to addressing.

Ensuring No One Faces Cancer Alone

This is the heart of what sets Cancer Card apart: our commitment to ensuring that no one faces cancer alone, and that everyone has access to the support they need, when they need it, in one accessible, compassionate, and comprehensive platform. This unified approach is bolstered by our extensive collaborations and partnerships. Rather than duplicating services, we work to enhance and connect the existing support ecosystem, ensuring that patients can access the right support at the right time.

Cancer Card's Unique Approach - A Comprehensive, Unified Solution

What truly sets Cancer Card apart in the landscape of cancer support is our commitment to providing a comprehensive, unified solution to the fragmented support system that so often leaves cancer patients and families struggling to piece together the care they need, allowing them to focus on what matters most - their health, their well-being, and their loved ones. Our unique approach, grounded in the lived experience of our founder Jen Hardy, is designed to provide a seamless, holistic support system that addresses the full spectrum of needs - emotional, practical, informational, and financial - that arise following and throughout a cancer diagnosis.

Accessibility and Reach - Bridging the Gap in Cancer Care Inequalities

Our commitment to accessibility and reach ensures that this unified support system is available to all who need it, regardless of digital skills, socioeconomic status, or geographic location. Through our outreach efforts and partnerships with community organisations, we are able to bring vital support services to underserved communities, helping to bridge the gap in cancer care inequalities.

Alignment with Scottish Governement's Strategic Priorities

Cancer Card's initiatives align closely with the Scottish Government's strategic priorities for cancer care, as outlined in their Cancer Strategy and Action Plan. From our contributions to prehabilitation to our support for mental health as part of basic care, our work is helping to realise the government's vision for person-centered, compassionate cancer care. This strategic alignment positions us as a key partner in improving cancer outcomes and experiences in Scotland.
