Dealing with cancer is traumatic enough - but there's also the upheaval and disruption trying to juggle medical treatment with trying to get on with all the normal things in normal life.
But now a new mobile chemotherapy unit will help more than 6000 cancer patients get their treatment closer to home.
And the unit, run by The Christie, will be stationed in supermarkets across Greater Manchester.
Patients say it will allow them to continue their normal lives during the treatment, and speed up their recovery.
Our correspondent Elaine Willcox has been to the launch.
