Our local support services are busier than ever before, but it’s vital we keep going.

Sue Godward from Morecambe found her world turned upside down when tests revealed she had colorectal cancer.

“It was very scary. Everything was happening so quickly. I am normally a very confident and bubbly person but that all changed following the diagnosis.”

“I was always very body confident and used to enjoy wearing bikinis on the beach, but I had to have major surgery to treat the cancer and my body changed a lot. It left me unable to walk and I felt disfigured with all the stitches and the stoma. I developed a very negative image of myself.”

“I got in touch with CancerCare and they organised for me to have massage & reflexology with Angela, one of the therapists there. It’s been absolutely amazing. Being able to talk to Angela helped me to feel so much better about myself. She helped me to improve my walking and literally helped me get back on my feet. She helped me get my sparkle back! At CancerCare, I felt like I was being looked after during a really bad time. I can’t thank them enough for being there when I needed it the most.”

We’re determined to make sure no-one in our community has to cope with cancer or bereavement alone… but we need your help to make that happen.
