Wear a touch of tartan to remember people affected by cancer.
Cancer Support Scotland is a Scottish run charity that’s been around for nearly forty years. Originally we were called ‘Tak Tent’, old Scot’s phrase for ‘Take Care’, and that’s why we adopted the theme: Take Care, wear Tartan for a day.
We are asking you to wear something tartan for the day to remember someone affected by cancer and to carry out one small act of kindness to show you care.
Did you know a person with cancer or a survivor is less likely to develop PTSD if they:
Receive strong support from family and friends
Are given correct information about the stage of the cancer
Have good relationships with members of the health care team
