You are not alone. Together, we Run for Hope.

Cancer Support Group 06 is a volunteer-run charity assisting those impacted by cancer, including family and friends, in the Alpes-Maritimes (06) and part of the Var (83). Many volunteers have firsthand experience with cancer. We listen, identify support needs, and connect patients to valuable resources. We also run drop-in ins which offer morale and practical support. Our team has knowledge of the French healthcare system and includes several French speakers.

Brian Woolf, President of Cancer Support Group 06, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “CSG06 is a not-for-profit organisation that provides practical support and creates a safe space for those impacted by cancer: patients, family, friends, and caregivers. CSG06 relies on donations. By partnering with Mimosa Matters, CSG06 will have a more successful fundraiser ensuring that the vital work continues to help those in need.”
