Hello supporters! We (Megan, Holly & Karis) are raising money for the Wessex Cancer Trust by getting involved in the Rainbow Run on Sunday 5th of August & we'd really appreciate if you guys could help us raise some money towards the Wessex Cancer Trust target of £100k, which will hopefully create a new Cancer Well-being Centre, here on the Isle of Wight!

As some of you may already know, cancer has affected our own families hard over the years & we'd like to give something back for those times we needed somewhere to go - somewhere that could offer support and information to those in need. With all the support and information it can provide, a new Well-being Centre on the Isle of Wight will help soo many families that are/will have to go through one of the hardest situations a family could possibly go through.

Lots of love -

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.
