Wendy’s story

Wendy found support, hope and friendship at our cancer Support Centre in Hythe after she was diagnosed with Stage 3 womb cancer.

With Christmas and the new year approaching, Wendy reflects on her cancer journey and the emotional, physical and practical support Wessex Cancer Support provides her:

Nowadays, my Christmas is tinged with sadness. My mum died of cancer in late November. So during the festive period I think a lot about loved ones and reflect on my own cancer journey.

After treatment for Stage 3 womb cancer I was constantly unwell and low. My body struggled to absorb food and I felt bloated and sick. Over time, things got so bad that I couldn’t go out or work. I was so lonely. I was prescribed antidepressants, but I knew I needed more physical and emotional support. That’s when I found out about Wessex Cancer Support’s Support Centre in Waterside, Hythe.

But we know that not everyone living with cancer is getting the personalised support they desperately need. With your help, Wessex Cancer Support can be there for anyone who needs them.

As Christmas comes around again and I reflect on the years gone by, I feel blessed to have found Wessex Cancer Support. I can honestly say they’ve saved my life.

With your help Wessex Cancer Support can be there for anyone affected by cancer who needs support.

Thank you for your support.
