This weekend we saw Team Cav absolutely smash the Sheffield Half Marathon with flying colours! We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who ran and raised money for us and also to all of our volunteers and marshal’s for all their help. This fantastic day could not have gone ahead without you all, so thank you!!
Anyone who has been following our stories will know that our active volunteer and dear friend Kath has just endured an 8-day husky sled-trek in the frozen arctic… all in aid of Cavendish! And we’re happy to say it was a success! She’s now back on UK soil and she has this to say of her adventure;
Each year we provide care to more than 1,500 people who are faced with the impact a cancer diagnosis can have on their lives. We are here to listen, offer counselling, therapies and physical support. We provide the care these families deserve.
Cavendish Cancer Care is a local Sheffield charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We believe no one should face cancer alone, so we provide emotional support through counselling and complementary therapies to the patient, their carer and their children. Our services are provided free of charge and we rely on the donations from supporters and help from volunteers to continue our work. We provide the support that local families deserve.
I never used to notice the weather or the trees. But now I get up in the morning and think to myself, ‘Welcome to another day on planet earth’.
The primary benefit was that it refocused me. I learnt how to vent the anger that was all bottled up. I mean, 7 weeks of radiotherapy and chemo and it’s got to come out. It’s essential.
I just loved how Anna would say, “Yesterday has gone. Put it behind you. Your problems are not your fault or your wife’s. Let it go.”
I enjoy life much better now than before the cancer.
I haven’t changed as a person, but cars … money … this and that, it doesn’t mean anything.
