Whether it be a family member, a friend, a neighbour or just an acquaintance I am sure most of us have had the experience of dealing with cancer. You don't need me to tell you how awful this disease is but Cancer trusts all over the country still need to raise funds for research, treatment, support etc I am no athlete but the " Rainbow Run " is a fund raiser that will let me do my bit to support this great cause on the Island. If you can please sponsor me to " run " a 3k inflatable obstacle course while having paint thrown at me...come and throw some too !! All monies raised will go to the Islands Cancer Trust. Thankyou.

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.
