Help change life with cancer. For good

Challenge 150 Fundraiser

Challenge 150

Challenge yourself to run, walk or jog 150 miles in the month of April and help more people like Helen to live well with cancer.

"Everyone thinks you're 'okay' because you've finished treatment.

After I finished treatment for Hodgkin Lymphoma I expected life to go back to normal, but the reality is much harder. I felt fearful for my future, isolated and unsure how to move on from cancer.

Talking to a Penny Brohn UK counsellor helped me to accept what had happened to me, find ways to cope with the anxiety that cancer brings, and to think ahead".

Helen, 32.

Whether you walk or run, take the dog & kids, walk with colleagues or go it alone; do your recommended daily steps and exercise to hit your target. Each mile you cover, each penny you raise, you'll be changing lives with cancer.

At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine to live well.

This is even more true today as life with cancer has been more frightening with the impact of the coronavirus. Many cancer patients have faced months of shielding and isolating away from their loved ones when they need them most. This has resulted in many more people experiencing anxiety and depression and why we have adapted our services so we can still be there for people affected by cancer.

Having someone to talk to can make a huge difference to someone living with cancer. Your fundraising can make that happen.

Together, we'll change life with cancer. For good.
