Cancer Support Group Mallorca (CSG) is an established charity offering practical and emotional support for cancer sufferers, their families and carers. A team of volunteers provides wide-ranging services including guidance on cancer treatment in the Balearics and counselling and nutritional advice. A buddy system of others that have experienced cancer is also available. In addition, the team can assist with going with somebody to appointments, hospital visits, with translation/interpreting and transport. Wigs and prosthetics and wheelchairs can be lent or sourced. Other mobility and adapted equipment can be sourced. Support can also be given on bureaucracy and paperwork especially for healthcare. All volunteers speak English and some speak Spanish.
