Anthony Daniels is an actor, chiefly known for playing the golden robot C-3PO in the three Star Wars trilogies. He and his wife Christine spend much of the year in their house in Provence. Anthony writes:-
"Cancer can come to any of us. The dread, the fear, the loneliness, the anger, the sadness - for self and family. And sometimes friends and family are too close with whom to share your thoughts and feelings. But the need to talk is there. The need to share is vital. Talking privately, in complete confidence, to one of CSF’s understanding and empathetic volunteers really does help. They will listen and hear. They cannot change the facts but they can help how you feel about them. Whether you are a sufferer or friend or family, CSF is there for anyone touched by cancer. Life in France has many wonderful aspects but sometimes, in what feels like a crisis and in a different language, it may seem a vast and foreign land. Visit the website and see how, in so many emotional and practical ways, CSF can make it feel less so. Consider supporting the charity itself by becoming a volunteer. It can be amazingly rewarding to help someone in distress. Either way, please spread the word that Cancer Support France exists – for us all."
