Our Cancer Wellbeing Centres are a space to sit, talk or listen, but also a space to join a social activity or talk to a trained professional. The support they offer across the centres would not be possible without charitable funding.

Story

Simon, the funniest and most loving father, husband, friend and awesome radiology consultant, has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour. He has been humbled by the love and support of his family and friends, as well as the exceptional care provided by Ipswich Hospital. As he prepares for surgery at Addenbrookes, Simon has made the courageous decision to shave his head in solidarity with those affected by cancer and to raise money to support the cancer well-being fund. Any funds raised will support the valuable work of the Cancer well-being and information centres at Ipswich and Colchester hospitals. Simon, his wife Louise and their daughters Ellie, Lottie, and Abbie, would be so grateful for any contribution you can make towards this important cause. Your donation will make a meaningful difference to the lives of those affected by cancer in our community. Thank you for your generosity and ongoing support it means such a lot.
