The Hospital Saturday Fund has made a grant to Positive Action on Cancer (PAC) who offer free, professional counselling to anyone affected by cancer in the West Country.
A cancer diagnosis turns a family’s life upside down and PAC is there to hear someone say what is ‘unsayable’ to their loved ones.
