Care Days providing cancer patients the opportunity of being pampered free of charge for a morning


Care Days© enables those in the Paphos district who have been diagnosed with cancer in the last 3 years (including their partner), or anyone recently bereaved through cancer; the opportunity of being pampered FREE of charge for a morning and to 

“ Live the Dream!”

Care Days© can now offer 6 options to around 300 cancer patients a YEAR and 4 options to those recently bereaved through cancer. Subject to government Covid restrictions, we have raised an incredible €18k in services offered to cancer patients free of charge. 

Care Days© was launched on Viva FM Radio in mid May 2021, thanks to the most generous support offered by Dave Asher of Viva FM Radio and Charlotte Hadjikyriacou, we had our first patients enjoying Care Days© from the beginning of June 2021. 

The Care Days© project would never have got started without encouragement and support from Viva FM who have been supporting Care Days© from day one. Care Days© would also like to thank CPSG and PASYKAF for their support.
