Newham’s Cancer Support Group

CYANA is a patient-led charity, set up in 1983 to  provide support services to  patients, their carers and their families.  We know that cancer affects not only the patient but those around them.

We aim to provide a holistic support service to anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis.  For more details of the  services we provide, please click the “Services” link at the top of this page.

Happy New Year to one and  all!

We have confirmed dates for the touring Men’s Cancer Support Group run by St Joseph’s Hospice and facilitated by our counsellors.   The first date is Tuesday 9th February from  4 - 6pm at the Unitarian Church,  West Ham Lane, Stratford E15 4PH.  All male patients are welcome, just come along!   This group will run on the first Tuesday of every month.

We are also looking forward to welcoming our new  volunteer Complementary Therapist, Joss, who will be starting to offer massage and reiki with us very soon!   

We are still selling tickets for our Annual  Fundraising Dance at the Barking Road Community Centre,  627-633 Barking Road,E13 9EZ (formerly Newham African Caribbean Resource Centre).   Tickets are £10, time is 8 until late, and food and drink will be on sale all night.  Please come and join us for an evening of music and dance, including a live singer,  and of course the obligatory charity raffle  :)
