Our History

blue line

After being diagnosed with stage 4 Colon cancer in 2016, Mrs Neumann who had gone through this frightening and uncertain journey, recognised the need for support and guidance for cancer patients.

facilitating early diagnosis of cancer

Lev Chaim was founded in 2018 to facilitate the early diagnosis of cancer and referring patients to the right specialist in a timely manner.

The anxiety that comes with the uncertainty over a lump or bump or any concerning symptoms is debilitating that is where Lev Chaim steps in.

If you or someone you know is facing a cancer diagnosis or has any concerning symptoms, please reach out to us. We are here to help, and we are dedicated to providing the best support possible.

Our services

Fast track appointments

One of the key services we offer is fast tracked appointments. When the GP has a concern with a patient’s symptoms their wait to be referred under the NHS could often be months away. Each hour that passes the anxiety grows and so could the disease. Lev Chaim facilitates private testing by arranging appointments with top specialists often within a day or 2 (and on many occasions on the same day). We can arrange blood tests, scans, biopsies, mammograms, MRI’s, CT ultrasounds and more.

Medical advice and referrals

When a patient has been diagnosed with cancer, they are thrown into a complex world of treatment options, medical jargon, specialist referrals, and more. We provide each patient with adequate information to make informed decisions about their medical care and arrange for second opinions when necessary. We research treatment options and reach out to top professionals for recommendations for doctors best suited to the case.

Pampering & Care packages

When a parent or child of a family is diagnosed with cancer the whole family is thrust into an uncertain world. Lev Chaim lightens their days by distributing age-appropriate gifts throughout the year as well as for special occasions, yomim tovim, shabbosim and birthdays, to bring joy to the children and families who are shouldering hardships we should never know about. In times of crisis, we offer additional care such as Shabbos food, taxi fares etc. please be in touch to find out more.

Awareness & prevention

Numerous cancers can be prevented with regular screening thus saving lives through early detection. Lev Chaim regularly puts on awareness evenings for our community which are run sensitively. They also advise the community about preventative measures they can take and teach how awareness is key for the early intervention of cancer. For recordings of our previous awareness evening please be in touch with our office on 0161 660 7666

              Our Personal Miracle

              white line

              Our daughter Sarah began experiencing severe fatigue, often falling asleep at any time. She wasn’t herself, frequently getting upset for no apparent reason, and we were puzzled by her extreme mood swings.

              Feeling it necessary, we scheduled medical checks, including blood tests. The doctor reported that all results came back clear, suggesting it might be an emotional issue.

              As Sarah’s eyesight declined, we opted for an optician check, which led to a referral to an eye specialist to examine her cornea. However, those results also came back clear, prompting a referral for an MRI. Sarah’s condition continued to weaken over time. Continue Reading

                  When your doctor told me there's abnormalities and that he wants to rule out cance the fear was immediate. Lev Chaim saved me the months of waiting for appointments and consultations and expedited the process to a few days.

                    It's unbelievable how Lev-Chaim support by easying the burden and shortening waiting times. I'm sure that without this help everything would have looked different. One can truly realise and appreciate how saving such an organisation is, but only if he needs it himself.

                      We are extremely thankful to Lev Chaim for their help & dedication in ensuring that we got the best care possible. We got an appointment the same day we reached out to them with a worrying symptom and throughout the process when more appointments were needed they held our hand offering advice and guidance.
