I want to help people living with cancer. So many people are fighting cancer here on the Island. The isle of wight branch of Wessex cancer trust are trying to raise money to create a warm and welcoming community hub for people living with cancer. It will be somewhere to chat, get support and advice and enjoy some relaxing therapies. I would like to help the trust and make cancer sufferers lives a bit easier any way i can.

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.
