“ Live the Dream!”

Care Days© can now offer 9 options to around 300 cancer patients a YEAR and also to those recently bereaved through cancer. Since Care Days began, we have raised an incredible €18k in services offered to cancer patients FREE of charge!

If anyone who has lost a child would like someone to talk to about it, who has had the same awful experience, please email Andrew at
caredayscyprus@aol.com
and he will arrange for one of our Care Days volunteers who has also lost a child, to contact you.


 

Please read through the amazing Testimonials we have been sent:

Donate Your Locks!

Pasykaf and Orizondas currently collect hair over 20cm long for cancer patients who have lost their hair through chemotherapy, and they then pay for this hair to be used to make wigs for cancer patients free of charge in Cyprus and Crete; as wigs are very expensive to buy.
We would really appreciate those who have long hair over 20cm cut, to please donate it to Care Days.
Markos Hair Company Ltd will ensure that hair 25cms and over is delivered to PASYKAF through Care Days and hair 20-24cms long will be delivered by Care Days to Orizondas in Crete.
Please do something really great today and help people with cancer at no extra cost to yourself.

9. NEW!! TAI CHI SESSION

Dominique Kana has very kindly offered her Tai Chi classes in her beautiful serene garden, in Chloraka FREE of charge to Care Days cancer patients.
Tai Chi combines gentle movement, deep breathing techniques and meditation. Movements create stability in the body, reflecting an ancient Chinese concept of balance known as Yin and Yang. The breath work of tai chi is calming and meditative. Creating and holding the poses helps to loosen and strengthen the muscles.
During class there will be serene music playing. The class usually starts with warm-up exercises. You will be shown different moves and assisted to perform them. 
Studies have shown that tai chi improves quality of life, balance, agility, flexibility and muscle tone in cancer survivors. It may also help reduce fatigue, anxiety, depression and stress.

Please note:
Patients MUST bring a booking confirmation to your chosen venue, showing the date and name of patients and partners. This will be provided to you by email from Caredayscyprus@aol.com 

If your Care Days©  choice is not available on the date that you require, you may try for a later date, but if all dates are booked then please choose a different Care Days option.
Please bear in mind that priority will be given to terminally ill cancer patients.
