How we can help you

Jan's story

Jan

Jan from Bridgend was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. She comes to have her lymphoedema treatment on board our Mobile Support Unit, which visits her local sports ground weekly.

This is Jan's story:

“After having breast cancer I had chemotherapy and radiotherapy, I also had to have lymph nodes removed. This meant I developed lymphoedema in my left arm, so I come to Tenovus Cancer Care’s Mobile Support Unit for treatment.

"I’ve been coming here for years now, and it’s just amazing! The staff on the Unit are absolutely wonderful, they really are. You have music, coffee and tea, I can chill out and read a book while I’m here. The nearest hospital to me is Singleton, which is about an hour away – and then you’ve got problems parking. Whereas coming here, it’s just down the road, not even quarter of an hour. There’s always plenty of parking, it’s ideal.”
