The Golau Cancer Foundation, is the new name for fundraising for the South West Wales Cancer Centre.
The South West Wales Cancer Centre, is a part of the South Wales Cancer Network and is the second largest non-surgical
Cancer centre in the country, situated in Singleton Hospital. This Cancer Centre cares for people living in Bridgend up to Aberystwyth, and across all of
West Wales, supporting a population of over 800,000 people.
We give over 45,000 treatment to people every year. Helping tens of thousands of people and their families through the fight against Cancer.
The Cancer Centre, based at Singleton hospital in Swansea, has patients referred for treatment from across South West Wales:
Neath Port Talbot, Morriston, Prince Phillip, West Wales General, Withybush and Bronglas. Which include:
Local chemotherapy unit
Chemotherapy Day Unit (based at Singleton)
In patient treatments and specialised cancer care wards
1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lives*, but now more of us will Survive!
Cancer causes 1 in 4 deaths in Wales, leaving very few of us unaffected by Cancer.
However, with advances in Cancer research, treatment and care, survival rates are continuing to increase,
Now over half of people diagnosed with Cancer are now surviving for at least 5 years.
This is thanks to more people committing to the fight against Cancer.
