Testimonials

"Stafford Cancer Support Group is a very welcoming, informative group which I am very pleased to be a part of. The Speakers each month cover a wide variety of subjects and also there is a delicious morning tea hosted by a group of loving and generous people." Valerie Scriven.

"In 1998 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Two years after completing my chemotherapy and radiation treatments, I felt very alone, even though my family was very supportive. I realised that I needed help from someone who had been through a similar experience so I sought a Support Group. The Stafford Cancer Support Group was just what I needed. The warm welcome and willingness to listen and share their experiences has helped me to jump a hurdle and allow me to move on in a positive way. I thank the people behind the scenes who give their time to help people like me." Heather Badke.

"The Stafford Cancer Support Group "rescued" me during a desperately low period of my life. From the moment I tentatively attended my first meeting I was welcomed with such warmth and kindness I felt I belonged. I've made wonderful new friends who listen and care, and every meeting I gain help and information while enjoying a really fun time." Anon.
