If you have cancer or you?re close to someone who has, it can be frightening and stressful. We can help. We bring treatment, emotional support and practical advice to where it matters most; the heart of the community. Tenovus Cancer Care is here to help you cope, and through our vital research, we offer hope. We?re the leading cancer charity in Wales and, whenever you need us, we?re here.
Founded by 10 volunteers in 1943, Tenovus is widely recognised for its ground-breaking work in cancer research. Tenovus scientists developed the use of Tamoxifen, now used worldwide to treat breast cancer, and Zoladex which treats prostate cancer.
Tenovus works in unique ways to support those affected by cancer by providing welfare and benefits advice, counselling and bereavement and support groups including our Sing with Us choirs. The free cancer Support Line (0808 808 1010) is open 365 days a year, 8am - 8pm and all Tenovus Cancer Care's services are free, for as long as they are required. Tenovus Cancer Care actively supports cancer patients through the innovative Mobile Support Unit which delivers cancer treatment closer to patient's homes, saving journey times and stress.
