How we help

Our work focuses on three key areas – patient care, patient comfort, and research – and our work supports the services provided by the Health Service.  

Fundraising

Everything we do to support local cancer patients relies on our wonderful supporters who raise vital funds for us. The good news is that the only limit to what you can do to raise money is your imagination. 

Make a donation

One-off donation

£25 could help us purchase additional equipment in wards and clinics throughout the Cancer Centre.

£50 could pay for 1 days refreshments for patients and their families whilst being treated at the Bridgwater Suite.

£100 could help us continue to fund groundbreaking local cancer research.

 

Monthly donation

£5 per month could pay for 2 hours of a Friends of the Cancer Centre Clinical Nurse Specialist

£10 per month could help support a cancer patient financially through Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Grant Programme

£25 per month could support local research, to give patients in Northern Ireland the latest developments in cancer treatment.

EVERY PENNY MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE

What to expect from your radiotherapy treatment

This video has been developed by the radiotherapy staff at the Cancer Centre in Belfast with the support of Friends of the Cancer Centre to provide patients and their families with an insight into what radiotherapy is and what they can expect from treatment in a bid to help alleviate some of the fear that often comes with this type of cancer treatment. 

This video explains what exactly radiotherapy is as it follows a patient from their arrival to the Cancer Centre, through the planning process and shows what can be expected from treatment itself.
