Emotional Support

At Essex Cancer Research, we understand that cancer doesn’t just affect the body—it can also take a toll on mental and emotional well-being. That’s why we’re committed to providing access to resources and support services that address the emotional needs of individuals affected by cancer.

From coping with the shock of diagnosis to navigating the ups and downs of treatment, our Emotional Support initiatives aim to provide a safe space for patients, survivors, caregivers, and loved ones to express their feelings, seek guidance, and find solace in community.
