Deaf Cancer team

Sep 26, 2022

Hello, we are the Deaf Cancer team, and for the last four years, we have been supporting Deaf people who have Cancer and their carers.
This project has been funded by Macmillan. The Deaf cancer support project is expanding and going really well. Our service is for Nottingham/shire & Derby/shire. Our service can provide videocall support for Deaf people who have cancer. For those who are at home and want to talk to another person affected by cancer or Carers, we can provide support as they can empathise with you.

We have a team, of Deaf Macmillan volunteers, all have been trained by Macmillan and Self Help. They are happy to provide video support in the UK.
We can use text messages, messenger, or Zoom. We can provide 1:1 support or online groups with other deaf people with cancer on Zoom.
Volunteers are ready and happy to support you.

Maybe you can’t share your feelings with your family, you can with us or other Deaf people who have cancer.
If you are living in the UK and want to chat to get things off your chest. If you are interested and would like the support, please contact us on:
