Cancer United is a unique cancer support charity for all those whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.
Cancer United was founded by Jan Sheward, following a life-changing diagnosis of breast cancer, when she experienced first-hand the lack of appropriate health and wellbeing support available to those going through cancer treatment
Through the benefits we offer we aim to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of those with cancer from diagnosis onwards, inspiring them to embrace the things they can do and to refuse to be defined by what they can’t whilst also giving support to those close to them
The services and benefits that Cancer United and CU Fitter® offer are inclusive to everyone and encompass all those whose lives have been affected by cancer including family friends and carers whatever religion or from whatever walk of life.
We are welcoming, caring and fun to be with so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and see how we can help and support you…
From the moment you contact us we can, through cancer exercise, help you on your cancer journey, even if it’s at the point of your diagnosis.
Whatever your level of fitness, join us for gym exercises and a range of classes. OutKick Cancer is our newly formed walking football team and we are launching CU Fitter swimming, the UK’s first and only bespoke swimming exercise programme for people with cancer.
Cancer United is a support charity for local people whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.
We run weekly Active Recovery support groups where members can talk about their “new normal”, learn from and support each other. Our popular choir OutSing Cancer meets weekly and has an impressive diary of appearances.
