Who are we?

Cancer Support France: A network of independent associations throughout France that provides support for English-speaking people who have been touched by cancer.

Each association organises itself according  to the needs of its own area.  They are supported by an ‘umbrella’ association, which began life as the original association ‘Cancer Support France in the Poitou Charentes (CSIPC)’.

All associations are set up according to the French law of 1901.

The website

We realise that cancer and its treatment is difficult enough in your own country but in a new land it can be very very difficult indeed. The aim of this website is to give you access to the linguistic, emotional or practical help that you may need.
