"I just wanted to get in touch and say thank you for the care you provided for me some time ago - 14 years to be precise!"

Anastasia with her son - 14 years later!

"I was quite ill at the time and was finding things quite a struggle. Even though I had family around me , when you are in that situation you still feel so alone.  My young son was only three years old and my then husband worked all the hours under the sun. I had very little energy."

"I came to CancerCare to have weekly Counselling sessions which helped enormously - for that one hour it was an oasis of calm. I also attended  their Jewellery Group where I learned how to make silver jewellery, led by CancerCare tutor Tess. I will never forget her. She was so patient and also very talented."

"I don’t know what I would have done without Tess and CancerCare all those years ago. I was so very grateful for the support  and felt much less isolated."

"Thank you so much CancerCare - the work you do is very much appreciated!"
