Tulips - Help those with cancer

Welcome to Tulips TRNC

We are affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly as it seems these days we all know someone with cancer, Cancer is one of the hardest battles you will encounter and Tulips is there to help you irrespective of your nationality.

How we can help?
Tulips have a cancer support team working in and around the Girne area from Karsiyaka in the west to Esentepe in the east. The team is available to support you every step of the way through your cancer treatment. However we do not have the resources of the National Health Services in the UK but try to help patients as much as possible with the resources that we do have available.

News Alert

We have just been informed by one of our patients that the procedure for seeing the Doctors in the Oncology Unit has been streamlined. As well as having the ticket numbering system, the Doctors are also aware of who is next in line to be seen. The next patient's name appears on the Doctor's computer screen, thus ensuring that there is no queue jumping. More info >>

Help Just for You
 
Do you want support and information?

We know how important it is to have someone to talk to when you have been diagnosed with cancer, this is especially important when you are living in a country where the language may be a problem.

Equipment and Nursing Care


Tulips can provide some equipment e.g. pressure mattresses, wheelchairs, etc. We also have a home care nursing team and can provide contact details for private nursing care, should you require nursing at home.

Proverb

We can provide information to help take the stress out of cancer treatment. This includes information on the systems of support at the Lefkoşa State Hospital Oncology Unit, chemotherapy treatment, radiotherapy treatment, prescriptions for drugs, provision of equipment, private medical care, etc.

Information sheets and Maps are also available (click here)

Whatever your question about cancer treatment and provision in TRNC one of our team of cancer support workers will try to help. They are available to visit you in your home, answer telephone or email queries or link you to volunteer’s willing to share their experiences of cancer care in TRNC.

Cancer support workers can also arrange appointments for you to see the Oncologist.

If you request help from Tulips you will be asked to complete a Membership Form (membership of Tulips is free - request to have a form sent to you: [email protected]). The information that you provide helps us to give you the best advice we can.

 Financial worries?


Healthcare in TRNC is not free. Surgery, drugs, blood tests, scans etc have to be paid for. If you are diagnosed with cancer contact us for further information.

Depressed

Treatment is available at Lefkoşa State Hospital and at various private hospitals.

Tulips cannot fund surgery but may be able to help with the cost of chemotherapy drugs. However this is subject to the completion of a Financial Status Form and is also dependent upon the charity funds available at the time, as the charity is funded by public donations only. Form Request

Patients' stories

Jacqui Sharp's story

Most everyone will recall where they were the moment they heard that the twin towers had been hit. For me, sitting at my desk at work there was a sense of the world having shifted slightly; that something had just happened that was going to change perspectives, as indeed it did.

Hearing that I had cancer was a bit like that. Read more>>
 

Teresa Gormley's story

Teresa's story begins one Wednesday in September last year, (2013). Ever since we have lived in Cyprus we have kept Wednesday as a day off, meaning that we do nothing at all except lie in the sunshine with our cats, have lunch and maybe a beer or two. Everyone we know knows not to bother us on a Wednesday. This particular Wednesday was different. Teresa woke up with a pain in her side. Read more>>

Fund Raising

Fundraising and donations are essential to Tulips, without your help we would not be able to supply the care and support people are getting now.
