When we’re facing challenges in life, support can mean everything. Feeling supported can make a big difference to our quality of life, and it can be equally rewarding to know you’ve helped someone else.
We’re often afraid of saying the wrong thing to someone going through a hard time, but if you’re open, honest and show concern you can be a great support.
Barbara, who lives in Basingstoke, was supported by Wessex Cancer Trust in 1995 after being diagnosed with cancer of the womb. The care she received, and the way people treated her, meant a huge amount at a really difficult time. Recently, she decided she wanted to give back to the charity who supported her and so decided to make a large gift to Wessex Cancer Trust.
“Wessex Cancer Trust made a big impact on my life and I wanted to be able to give something back so they can continue to provide vital support to others in the same situation.”
