What We Do
Cancervive is a charity established to address the needs of anyone whose family or friends are cancer sufferers. We are here to provide a support network based upon our own personal experience at these difficult times.
Through our support groups, our online community and our telephone support, we can enable you to be able to talk openly and confidentially with people who have first hand experience.
The Zinnia Flower – our symbolThe zinnia flower has several connotations associated with it including thoughts of friends, endurance, daily remembrance, goodness and lasting affection. We see the Zinnia flower as a symbol of the numerous people cancer can affect. The centre being the cancer patient and the petals around the edge being the people it affects.
The zinnia flower’s underlying message is that setbacks are only temporary, and the moment will pass.
