The Blue Space - Male Cancer Support - for men with cancer and also for men whose partner has cancer

What we offer:

Men's Sessions, for men with cancer diagnosis

When & Where: 1st and 3rd Tuesday of month, 10am - 12:30pm at The Blue Space, 1st floor, 3 Wote Street, Basingstoke, RG21 7NE
PLease note we are on the first floor- up set of stairs (no lift).
Contact us to book in for next session.
You may bring your partner if you wish. Booking is essential and sessions are free - though donations are always gratefully received.

What: Our trained therapists can offer massage and/or reflexology to help reduce anxiety and some of the effects of cancer and its treatment side-effects. We also have Counsellor and a Foot Care Practitioner (for trimming those hard to reach toenails!). Our therapists receive training in Oncology Massage and adapt each therapy for the individuals circumstances. Our sessions also allow men (and their partners) to meet others in similar situation and gain information. Booking required for our sessions - just email or call.

Who: Men with a cancer diagnosis, at any point from diagnosis onwards. At the moment we do not have a time limit for our mens session (ie how long after treatment you can come for) and our plan is to add extra sessions as need arises. However the aim of our charity is to provide support where it is needed so if a session is reaching capacity priority would be given to those more recently diagnosed or in greatest need. Men are welcome to bring their partners to sessions.  

How much: This is a FREE service though we do use professionally trained therapists and have running costs so donations are always gratefully received.
Although we have volunteers, we do have costs for the premises, equipment, supplies and extra services needed. We appeciate any support so look out for our fundraising events.
