Cancer affects us all in some way. Either close in the family or to friends and their families. We can lose people we love and we worry about those that are suffering and their families, But we can also support those going through treatment and there are so many survivors these days that any fundraising we can do to increase this number the better. That's why we want to do The Monster Dash 2018!

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.
