Today, Clan Cancer Support announces a new campaign, Power to Help, spearheaded by new Head of Cancer Support Services, Danny Lynch.
Danny, an NHS Clinical Nurse Specialist with over 20 years of experience working with cancer patients, has joined charity Clan Cancer Support to lead its professional services team. Danny wants to spread the word to people facing cancer about Clan's power to help.
Danny Lynch, Head of Cancer Support Services at Clan, said, "I've had such an affinity for the work that Clan has been doing in the north-east and Northern Isles, having worked with cancer patients for the past 21 years at NHS Grampian's Oncology department. One thing that has blown me away is the life-changing support that Clan provides, which is why I'm delighted to announce the launch of our new campaign, Power to Help.
"Clan has the power to help anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis, whether it's you or a loved one. Our cancer support specialists can give you the tools to cope with and live beyond a cancer diagnosis, supporting you every step of the way. With our centres and services back to face to face contact, we want to encourage anyone affected by cancer to get in touch with us today."
Clan has eleven centres across the north-east and Northern Isles, to provide care and support in the heart of the community. With this new appointment and campaign, they hope to reach even more people facing a cancer diagnosis.
Dr Colette Backwell, Clan's Chief Executive, said, "We are thrilled to welcome Danny and the new level of expertise he brings to Clan's services. Clan plays a vital role in peoples’ cancer journey, so it's a fantastic win for the charity to have the knowledge and professionalism from a respected figure within the NHS.
"Danny's appointment is the first step for Clan's enhanced service offering, and we want to encourage more clients back into our community wellbeing centres. With cancer services and diagnosis ramping up, we want to spread our message to anyone facing a cancer diagnosis; we have the power to help."
