CSF is a network of independent associations throughout France that provides support for English-speaking people of any nationality who have been touched by cancer.
Each association organises itself according to the needs of its own area and all associations are set up according to the French law of 1901.
Who we are
We are all volunteers
Many of us have experienced cancer first-hand and understand the emotional effects of the disease and its treatment
We have extensive knowledge of the French health care system and many of our volunteers speak fluent French
All of our support team have received training from Cancer Support France, however, we are not medically trained

Volunteers undertake to treat information about clients as private and confidential. This undertaking continues after the volunteer and/or client ends their relationship with the Cancer Support organisation, for whatever reason.
Clients need to understand that some information may be made available to other members of the Cancer Support team in some circumstances. This may happen:
when the volunteer needs to consult a fellow team member for information on how best to support the client;
when a volunteer needs support for him/herself from a fellow team member relating to their volunteer work in the organisation.
Exceptional circumstances may make it necessary to disclose information to a third party, wherever possible after discussion with, and with the prior consent of the person concerned. Disclosure of information would only be made:
if required by law or a court order;
if justified in the wider public interest, for example to protect the client or others from the risk of significant harm;
if a client made a formal complaint against a volunteer or the organisation, in response to such a complaint.

Each country has its own way of dealing with patients. Sometimes the treatment you read about here may not be available, or may be provided in France in a different way.
Web sites can only give generalised information. Your cancer is unique to you. Your treatment programme will therefore be tailored to your needs.
