Why fundraise to support Life after Cancer?

92% of our cancer community told us that they find life after cancer harder than cancer treatment. Help us support adults to increase their wellbeing and reduce isolation after cancer.


Our mission is to create a world where people who have had cancer are less isolated and can manage their mental wellbeing. We would like every individual to know that there is a free, safe, non-judgemental space here for anyone who has experienced cancer. 


Your fundraising supports us to do that. 

What impact does your fundraising make?

All money raised will go directly towards delivering the following free services to individuals who've had cancer:

  • Online and in person coach facilitated peer support groups

  • Expert led workshops on topics that matter to the post cancer community

  • Wellbeing walk and talk group in Waltham Forest

  • 6 Week Coaching programme
