With your support we are ensuring people in Norfolk & Waveney are not alone with cancer. We understand that friends and families sometimes cannot give all the support cancer patients need, and often the carers need support themselves. This is where Big C comes in. We can help with support and treatment through pre-diagnosis all the way through the twists and turns your cancer journey takes.
Big C – Since 1980
In 1980, two young men from Norfolk found themselves with cancer and having to travel to London for treatment, often finding this harder than the treatment itself. They vowed people of Norfolk & Waveney would have access to treatment and support in their local areas.
Over thirty years on, this is being realised more than ever, with over £20 million being raised since Big C began. Hospitals have up-to-date surgical and diagnostic equipment, research at the UEA has made some incredible discoveries and support for those affected by cancer is reaching out to those who need it, closer to them.
