North Wales Cancer Care
Profile:

North Wales Cancer Care is a voluntary community group supporting anyone affected by cancer. They offer information, one to one support, complementary therapies and guidance to help people cope with the emotional stress and sense of isolation that a diagnosis of cancer can bring.

All the practitioners on the register are qualified, insured and registered with an appropriate body. As well as working in the community some of the practitioners also provide a complementary therapy service in the 3 main hospitals.

Sheila Smith is the Coordinator of the center who is trained in Radiotherapy and Mammography, and was involved in setting up the National Breast Screening service. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991, she combined conventional treatments with complementary approaches and developed a keen interest in the benefits of complementary therapies. She studied Shiatsu for three years, qualifying in 1995, and then trained in Acupuncture, Feng Shui and Thai Massage.

Sheila was a member of the North Wales Cancer Patient forum for many years with a particular interest in improving psychological, emotional and spiritual support. Since moving to Yorkshire recently she remains a virtual member and is also now on the Board for Yorkshire Cancer Community. Sheila continues to coordinate NWCC and offers telephone and email support and guidance.
