As a family we are aware of what a fantastic job the Wessex Cancer Trust do for people on the Isle of Wight living with cancer. Janet has accessed their help after being diagnosed and treated for cancer 3 years ago. They are a vital resource on the island and are hoping to move to new better improved premises for which they need a large amount of funding. Also the Daisy bus that takes people to radiotherapy in Southampton and Portsmouth is such an important service and must be funded to keep going. For these reasons and more we want to raise money to help them which is why we are taking part in the Inflatable Run on Sunday 5th August.

Brian and Janet Harley

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.
