My mum found a lump in her breast the next thing she was having her breast removed. It was cancer and was going to kill her as it had spread to her lymph glands and the cancer was now growing in her liver. She died aged 58 16 months later. Wessex Cancer Trust support people like my mum throughout their battle with cancer. They help them in lots of areas. Cancer effects everyone. Please donate what you can to support this charity. Thanks

Wessex Cancer Trust believe that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.

Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family.  Wessex Cancer Trust is committed to offering free support for as long as people need it.

At all of our cancer centre clients are welcomed by our volunteer befrienders who are equipped to provide information, support and a listening ear. Our team of specialist counsellors are there to help deal with the emotional impact of cancer and our complementary therapies aim to improve wellbeing, help with pain management and increase self-confidence.

Wessex Cancer Trust also provide dedicated children's services, singing therapy groups, programmes to help people move on from cancer and a transport scheme which provides over 20,000 passenger journeys each year. 

Each year Wessex Cancer Trust are able to reach over 8,000 people in the local community.
