In early 2016 my partners mother Susan was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer with secondary tumors in her brain, she was initially given at best 3 months but with help from her family and Wessex cancer trust she managed 15 months more than that, and passed away in January 2018.
Wessex cancer trust helped Susan and her family throughout her treatment in many different ways and are still helping her family after her passing even to this day.
To try and raise as much as I can I'm doing a 10 mile walk through the New Forest on the 9th of June with my partner, her family and lots of other fundraisers, I'm not the fittest person so could use as bigger incentive as possible :-)

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 at the heart of 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 to 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.
