When you are planning a holiday it’s important to research your destination before you book, to make sure it’s right for you, and your health. Getting the travel health advice that you need, like getting travel health insurance, is really important, especially if you have an existing medical condition. We have partnered with Travel Health Pro to bring to you the expert travel health advice and information you need to get started.
Travel Health Pro houses the resources of the National Travel Health Network Centre (NaTHNaC) which was set up by the Department of Health in 2002, with the aim of “protecting the health of British travellers”.
Shine Cancer Support is the only charity in the UK to offer exclusive support to young adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s who have been diagnosed with cancer. Shine has local networks across the UK and run a number of events including Shine Camp, the Great Escape and Shine Connect. The charity also run a number of tailored workshops.
In 2018 we teamed up with Shine and created the Real Life Guide to Travel Insurance. All too often people with a cancer diagnosis are unable to find an affordable travel insurance policy or are refused cover, so Shine spoke with their community and gathered the top travel insurance questions – and we answered them! You can download the guide here.
simPal is the only charity in the world striving to keep those living with cancer connected with their friends and family during their most challenging times. The charity raises money for pre-paid SIM cards which are donated to people living with cancer.
Cancer poverty is a huge issue across the UK and simPal are determined to prevent loneliness and social isolation for those affected.
