We are fundraising for the Building for the Future campaign which aims to build a new cancer wellbeing centre on the Isle of Wight. We are taking part in the IOW Inflatable Rainbow Run to raise funds for a new cancer wellbeing centre on the IOW. This would benefit so many people in our community. So many of us have been affected by cancer in some way, and it would be brilliant to raise as much as possible to help support this appeal. Even if you can't donate... share our page and let people know about this amazing charity and the work that they are putting in to support our local community. Thank you.

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.
