My story

[p]Please sponsor me in the fun run. It is 8.5 miles that is about 20000 steps. Hope its easier than last time!![/p][p]I'm raising funds for the Cancer Support Centre a brilliant local charity that has been helping anyone with cancer and their carers for the last 17 years. [/p][p]It isn't a hospice but a special place with a warm welcome that really supports you to cope with the impacts, side effects and changes that living with cancer creates. I had womb cancer and it has been a real sanctuary for me whether I needed somewhere to be accepted as I am, information about cancer and how to manage the condition as well as possible, a treatment to help me feel better or, somewhere for a chat and a cup of tea. The range of groups is great, something for everyone from Art through Gardening to Yoga. The centre helps you to feel normal when cancer is causing you to feel anything but. The team are dedicated and the professional therapists are experts in treating cancer patients safely. The volunteers are marvellous, kind and caring and the clients become friends and a support system. [/p][p]The service is strongly influenced by the feedback clients give, everything the centre does is designed to support and empower clients helping to rebuild confidence again, and make the most of life. You can find out more here: [b]www.suttoncancersupport.org[/b][/p][p]The centre currently needs Ā£700 a day to stay open to help the 600 clients it is supporting. That number is increasing every year. They have no government funding so every penny has to be raised. Now I am a volunteer and decided to take up the challenge of the great midlands fun run to raise some money for the centre so it can continue its amazing work. I want to help it to help other people like me.[/p][p]Whatever you can give will directly make a difference so please be generous.[/p][p]Thanks so much for reading this page and for giving anything you can afford to donate.[/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p]
