We support families affected by cancer to improve their quality of life


In November 2019, at the age of 39, I was diagnosed with bowel cancer.   Life was turned upside down, it’s fair to say. Surgery and chemotherapy followed.  The physical recovery was the easy part… the emotional recovery was a lot more complicated. 
Cavendish Cancer Care was there when I really needed them and has continued to be there throughout my recovery. 
Cavendish Cancer Care offer support not just to patients affected by cancer, but their families and carers too.  They offer a range of therapies including counselling, acupuncture, massage, reflexology, hypnotherapy, relaxation classes and various courses focused on making life with cancer all the more bearable, all in a safe space outside of a hospital setting. 

The Manchester Half will be my first race post cancer and is a bit of a grudge match.  I ran the Manchester Half in 2019, 5 weeks pre-diagnosis.  So this is not simply about getting round.  I am very much out to improve my time!!!

Cavendish Cancer Care is a Sheffield charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for those living with cancer and their loved ones. Last year, they supported over 1,900 people affected by cancer, including carers and children. They offer free-of-charge packages of therapy and support, tailored to each individual's specific needs. But Cavendish only receive enough statutory funding to keep their doors open for about two weeks each year, meaning they rely on the generosity of the public to keep running. Put simply - they need your help.
