2020 marked the charity's 40th year, a year that turned out to be like nothing anyone would have imagined.
You needed us more than ever. We did everything we could to be there for you including taking all our services on line for the first time.
Take a look back at the many moments over the last 40 years that have made us who we are today.
Our story began in 1979 when our founder, Penny Brohn, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Penny, who grew up in Bristol, knew instinctively that she needed more than just care and treatment for her body. She recognised that she needed to care equally for her, “mind, spirit, emotions, heart and soul”. With her close friend Pat Pilkington, she set out to find what she was looking for.
“Care for the mind, spirit, emotions, heart and soul.”
– Penny Brohn, Founder of the Bristol Cancer Help Centre (now Penny Brohn UK)
