I enjoy walking around Hampshire and in the New Forest. My son is a survivor of childhood cancer and was treated on the Piam Brown Ward in Southampton hospital. I work in a local secondary school where two students have also been treated at the same ward but unfortunately one of them sadly lost his fight in 2018. This walk and fundraising is being done for the survivors and in memory of those whose lives have been taken too soon.

Wessex Cancer Trust believe that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.

Community is what we are all about at Wessex Cancer Trust – we put services in local communities so people affected by cancer have somewhere to go at a time when they most need support.

A diagnosis can have a huge impact on the entire family. That’s why we’re committed to providing free support for anyone affected by cancer for as long as they need us. Our six cancer support centres are safe places for people to receive the emotional, practical and physical support they need.

From coffee mornings, to craft groups and wellness classes, people come together to meet people who understand what they are going through. We’re proud that our centres are a safe community for anyone affected by cancer.
