On Friday 27th April we will be taking on a Fire walk...which means walking across the hot coals which reach temperatures of 1200 degrees Fahrenheit!

Because having the big c is rubbish.... However after having it you have an excuse to do crazy fun stuff, and the years after that moment when your consultant tells you that you have cancer are the most defining and soul enriching you'll ever have. I had support from Wessex Cancer and they helped me adjust to my new normal.... Which is 100% better than the old normal! Many thanks, Louise and Anthea.

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.
