Cancer sufferers 'lacking support' in Wales, charity says

Help

Almost one in five people in Wales diagnosed with cancer each year say they lack support from family and friends, a charity claims.

A report from Macmillan Cancer Support reveals that more than half of health professionals say they have patients who refuse treatment because of this.

Former AM Karen Sinclair, who has cancer, was "saddened" by the findings.

"There are people out there who are facing this alone and they shouldn't have to," she said.

Matthew Richards reports.
