Published by GBC News

Activity at the Cancer Unit has tripled over the last five years, with more patients being seen and more support being provided.

Almost half - 48% - of new patients at the cancer unit present with advanced stage 4 cancer; the unit deals with patients who are in need of chemotherapy.

Diagnoses can often be overwhelming for patients - particularly if it catches them entirely off guard.

Fortunately patients and their loved ones are not alone. Cancer Relief Gibraltar has been on the Rock for coming up to eight years. Iain Triay Clarence spoke to Chair, Marisa Desoiza.
