The Red Heart Fund is a memorial fund which was set up in May 2001. Its aim is to promote and provide information regarding complementary therapies – particularly in relation to the alternative treatments that are available for those suffering with any form of cancer.
Complementary therapies are often used as a last resort, when all other treatments have failed.
When treating cancer, it can often seem like the only course of action is either chemotherapy or radiotherapy – which result in debilitating side effects and a dramatic loss of quality of life. Many people are simply not aware that there are other options.
There are a tremendous range of complementary therapies that can be used in an effort to treat cancer, or can be combined with conventional treatments, in order to reduce their side effects.
However, these therapies can be costly. At a time when their health has been severely impaired, and their earning potential dramatically reduced, most people simply cannot afford to consider these treatments.
The Red Heart Fund aims to provide information on the most affordable options available and also comprises of a medically supervised treatment centre, offering complementary therapies. Treatments are available to all, but particularly focus on cancer support – providing concessions to help those who wish to use complementary therapies and supplements to aid in the treatment of what doesn’t have to be a fatal illness.
