Because I need more than medicine
We're here for you.
“Being part of the Penny Brohn
fundraising family is really special.
They gave me the confidence to succeed.”
“Eating a healthy diet, staying active
and managing stress can have a big
impact on cancer survival. Penny Brohn
are experts in showing you how.”
“Penny Brohn helped me feel
like a human being again, not just
someone with cancer.”
We see you as an individual with your own hopes and needs. We understand that you need more than medicine to cope with all the ways that cancer can impact your life and aim to provide a supportive environment and practical advice to help you through your cancer diagnosis.
Is this you?
- I need to talk to someone
- I’m frightened
- I feel so alone
- I feel overwhelmed
- I’m anxious
- I want to know how to help myself
- I’m worried about my family
- I don’t trust my body
- I need more than medicine
If you’re questioning whether there is more you can do to live well and feel good, our Bristol Whole Life Approach will help you to find ways to take back some control and to live your best life possible with cancer.
You’re not alone…
We’ll support you, listen to you and introduce you to people who’ve been where you are. We’ll help you to find ways to help yourself. You may have had a recent diagnosis, be in treatment, or be further on in your experience of cancer – no matter who you are and whatever your circumstances we are here for you.
How can we help?
- We are a listening ear when you need to talk
- We have the information you need to make the choices that are right for you
- We are a safe space, where you feel cared for without having to ‘self-edit’
- We will support you to gain an understanding of what you need right now and how to reconnect with the things that you love
- We help you to build resilience and confidence to cope with your diagnosis and treatment, helping you to live as well as you can for as long as you can
Together, we’ll focus on the fact that you are a person with a life to be lived, and that cancer is only a part of this, and help you make small and sustainable changes whilst nurturing yourself at the deepest level.
