Who we are

The English Speaking Cancer Association (ESCA) is a not-for-profit association made up of professional counsellors and trained volunteers who have been touched by cancer.

Our Mission

We come from different countries but our shared goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of those affected by cancer by providing emotional support, practical help and information in English within Geneva, Vaud and neighbouring France.

Our Vision

To provide a friendly environment that is supportive, non-judgmental and confidential, and to become well integrated within the region’s medical community.

Professional counsellors

Our counsellors have concrete experience in crisis counselling.
