Welcome to the OPA Cancer Charity 

During these difficult days dealing with COVID-19 - we are still up and running and fully operational.  We are still able to provide referrals for our patients and carers that need help or advice.  There is a wealth of information on our website and lots of interesting articles for you to read or download, and interesting videos to watch. Please help us to help all of our patients, carers and their families, and don't forget any donations you can make during these times will be most gratefully received. Thank you everyone who continues to support our very important charity.
