On 10th June, three friends and I will take part in the Walk for Hope 2018, a sponsored walk to raise money for the Wessex Cancer Trust. We are doing this in memory of one of our best friends Emma Bevis, who sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. Emma was a fantastic friend, my amazingly calm and organised bridesmaid and one of the funniest and most caring people I have ever met.

The Wessex Cancer Trust is a charity that provides free help and support for cancer patients and their families. Please help me raise money for this much needed organisation.

Thank you

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.
