    Help us to keep your house safe.

    We are a local charity in Leicestershire which was established in 1981. The founder of Sue Young Cancer Support, was a lady called Sue Young, who lost her mother in 1979 from advanced ovarian cancer, within 10 weeks of her being diagnosed. Sue was 27 years old, with two young children under the age of three, she didn't know how to cope or what to do. Two years later, in November 1981, Sue set up a small charity called 'Coping with Cancer' with a small grant of £50. The purpose of this charity was to provide ‘emotional and physical support and friendship to those people suffering from cancer and their families’ – which remains the mission statement of Sue Young Cancer Support to this day, now termed as ‘practical and emotional support’ to clients, their families and their carers.

    Separately, in 1993, Helen Webb, died of ovarian cancer aged just 29 years. Her husband and family raised £150,000 over 6 years of fundraising and they brought this magnificent property at 35 Westleigh Road and named it Helen Webb House. The two were merged. Coping with Cancer at Helen Webb House. In in 2020 the charity changed its name to Sue Young Cancer Support after the original founder in recognition for her support to people affected by cancer.

    The larger part of funding enabling sustainability to the charity is through grant funding from the Clinical Commissioning Group, which pays for the provision of staff, maintenance of volunteers and provision of ongoing services. However, we need assistance with fundraising so we can provide structural upkeep and maintenance of the house with the inclusion of a shower, drainage and piping which is showing signs of distress and general structural upkeep both exterior from guttering and removal of Japanese Knotweed to interior replacement of high ceiling lighting etc.

    Help us to keep this house safe so we can continue to help all those affected by ensuring that this house continues to be as safe place for everyone affected by cancer in Leicestershire and Rutland to receive counselling, group therapy, complementary therapy, recreational therapy and much much more.
