We help the whole 'family unit' manage the impact of a cancer diagnosis...
Days out for all the family...
Short breaks and holidays in the UK and Europe...
We help families create amazing memories which last a lifetime...
Welcome to the 4 Cancer website, the part of the 4 Cancer Group that organises days out and short breaks for families affected by cancer. This is what we call “respite”.
Our respite trips have been creating memories for families affected by cancer since 2001. From sailing days to short breaks at UK holiday parks, we give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times.
We believe that ‘time’ is our most precious commodity. Time spent with the people we love, away from the stresses of everyday life at home, can make all the difference. We bring families together in wonderful locations and enable them to create memories which last a lifetime.

Testimonials from families we have helped…
“With sick child, everything is governed by their health - it's a cloud that's permanently hanging over us. We couldn't do this sort of thing normally. Thank you!”
“Two weeks before the trip my PSA reading had reached 28. After our holiday my reading is now 10.8!”
“Being diagnosed with cancer was an extremely stressful time. After the chemo and radiotherapy it was a pleasure to have something to look forward to.”
“These days out for all the family to enjoy mean so much to us as we have to spend so much time apart. Thank you again for all you do in support of families like ours.”
“Thank you for making the difference to the lives of children that have had to cope with things that no one should have to go through, let alone young kids.”
“It is impossible for people not in our situation to understand just how precious the memories of such a great day can be.”
“For a week I swam and did things I never ever thought I would do again. I did not think about cancer for more than a fleeting moment the whole week.”
“I have been through a very rough year finding out I had secondary cancer. Today was a day off from cancer. Many many thanks, it was brilliant!”
