Support & Hope
Being affected by cancer, and especially by one of PALEMA’s types of cancer, is obviously something life-changing, both for those directly affected and for their families.
Just looking at the statistics, the survival rates is not so good, but we should never forget that a lot of people actually get through this and lead a good life even after the disease.
In addition, there is a lot of interesting research going on for all our types of cancer that will hopefully result in better and more effective treatments in the future.
In this section, we will show all the support we at PALEMA can offer to those affected and also give some hope for the future by showing new and interesting research, as well as the stories of all those who have coped well with their disease.
Under Support & Hope you will find the following:
One of the ambitions of the PALEMA cancer organization is to offer support and help through contact with patients and relatives/relatives who have been/are in the same situation. We therefore offer telephone support to our members, both those directly affected and those indirectly affected/family members/relatives.
It is important to note that this is voluntary and it may take a few days for someone to contact you.

This is done voluntarily and on own initiative. The advice, tips and experiences shared should never take the place of patients’ contact with healthcare and recommendations from your doctors.
Nor do those who provide support do so in any way as representatives of either the PALEMA cancer organization or the health service, but as private individuals who have been or are in some way affected and who have experiences to share. The telephone contact can be terminated at any time and for any reason.
You can call our office phone 24 hours a day. We usually answer directly during the stated telephone hours unless we are busy on another call, of course, but then you can wait in our switchboard. But you can also call at other times and leave a message and we will call you back as soon as possible!
Telephone number: +46 10 146 51 10
Current telephone hours:
Weekdays 09:00 – 10:00
Övriga tider går det bra att ringa ändå och prata in ett meddelande, så återkommer vi så fort vi hinner.
At other times (24-7) you can still call and leave a message, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Being a family member of someone who becomes ill can be difficult. This includes dealing with stress and emotional difficulties, and often a lot of practical issues. One of the things that Cancerkompisar (cancer buddies) do is to pair up relatives in similar situations so that they can get support from someone who knows what it’s like.
