Cancer Charities

The wonderful thing about most of the cancer charities is that they “talk” to each other, and work with each other. So that if one particular charity cannot fulfil a certain role, they will call another charity to see if they can help. It’s fantastic to see how they work together with such an unfailing team spirit.
