The CSF group at Dordogne Sud was formed in 2007 in order to help English speaking people who have been, or are touched by cancer.
Our area covers up to Perigueux in the North, down to Eymet / Villereal in the South, Sarlat in the East and Libourne in the West. If you aren't sure if we cover your area, please get in touch and we will tell you, or direct you to the appropriate association.
It can be daunting to be in a foreign country, faced with serious illness, and not know your way round the French health service, and related complications that may occur. Emotions cancer brings to you and family and friends can be hard to manage alone. We are here to help you deal with problems and obstacles which may appear.
Our Active Listeners are trained to offer support , information and more, including help with language difficulties. Our team is made up of mature, caring people who understand your problems. Support may be offered by phone, email or face to face meetings. Attending Medical appointments with you may be offered if needed. While we do not provide specific medical help, information about services and systems may be available.
If you or your family wish any further information, please do contact us either by telephone or email.
Local Phone: 05 53 57 43 30. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org We are here to help you.
