In English

CancerRehabFonden is an independent non-profit organization that provides cancer rehabilitation free of charge. In order to do this we rely on donations from individuals and companies and therefore fundraising is an important part of our work. 

1 in 3 people in Sweden will develop cancer in their life time and almost half a million of the current population have received a cancer diagnosis. Every year 60,000 Swedes learn that they have cancer. 

Cancer does not only affect the body - there are also psychological and emotional side effects. After the cancer treatment it is common to experience anxiety and a fear of cancer recurrence. It can be difficult to return to everyday life and to the workplace. 

Rehabilitation can help cancer patients to recover, both mentally and physically. Unfortunately, the health care system in Sweden does not have enough resources to provide cancer rehabilitation and only a fraction of all cancer patients are offered rehabilitation. That is why CancerRehabFonden’s work is so important.
