FORCE Cancer Charity’s support centres in Exeter, Okehampton, Tiverton and Honiton may be temporarily closed during the Coronavirus pandemic but there are still plenty of services that people affected by cancer can access.
COVID 19 brings another layer of anxiety and distress for many of the charity’s beneficiaries, some of whom are finding themselves in the at-risk group while others may be facing changes to their treatment plans.
Information Manager Annie Kerr explains that FORCE staff are working to help local people dealing with a cancer diagnosis and we are encouraging you to call for advice and support.
Experts are on the end of a telephone to offer advice on claiming benefits, accessing our counselling service, exercise to boost your immune system and general guidance on coping at this difficult time.
