Media Centre

We’ve put together a selection of media resources for Penny Brohn UK. If there is information you would like that you can’t find in this section, please contact the Press Office.

Millions of people are living with cancer in the UK and the number is rising every year. The challenge many people face is not dying, but living well. We aim to help people do more than just survive but to live as fully as possible for as long as possible. The Bristol Whole Life Approach is a powerful way of looking at health and wellbeing which is underpinned by 35 years of experience supporting people with cancer.
