The Faroese Cancer Society offers professional information and counselling as well as activities for people affected by cancer. No one should have to face cancer alone.
Talk about cancer
No one should face cancer alone. If you or someone close to you has cancer, it is important to talk about it. It gives you an opportunity to share your feelings and thoughts, and it can bring you closer together.
