No-one knows how they will react when diagnosed with cancer, it can be a life changing experience. Not only do we have to face our own mortality but also the prospect of surgery, chemotherapy and possible radiotherapy.

There often follows a long in patient stay in hospital whilst intensive chemotherapy is given. It is rather like being hit with a sledge hammer – one moment you don’t feel too bad and the next you are flattened by the diagnosis and the treatment.

The intensive chemotherapy will wipe out most of the blood count so the patient is totally dependant on medical support. There are no white cells in the blood to fight infection so patients are kept in isolation.

This is where LINC come in. By providing financial support and funding a clinical psychologist we can help to provide psychological support, helping to keep families and relationships together.

LINC provides help at the sharp end – at diagnosis and during the initial treatment.

The Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund is an important local healthcare charity that works to improve the care of cancer patients in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and south Worcestershire. We provide financial and psychological support for people receiving intensive chemotherapy in the three counties cancer centre in Cheltenham as well as their families and loved ones.

We try to ensure that every facility is available to make long stays in hospital as comfortable as possible. We are keen on research and fund the Robert Dalton Research Fellow – a post graduate student studying for either an MSc or a PhD in a cancer related subject.

By purchasing new equipment and funding update courses for staff we try to ensure that the treatment on offer is second to none.

LINC is a registered charity – number 1078183.
