Why choose the Wesley’s Choices Cancer Support Centre?
Prior to my diagnosis, I had worked to help others in the Choices programs for many years, with Kim Walters Foundation and Think Pink. Choices, offered me the choices I needed to get me through this ‘Journey’…
I was 41 when my doctor said those words (that echo as much today as on that day) “You have breast cancer”, that was 11th June 2013. I am very lucky to have an extremely supportive husband and two beautiful, then pre-teen children. I didn’t want to worry my family any more than they already were, with all my anxieties and fears - I knew I needed to find external support. Support that I could rely on, to not only provide me, but my family with the backing we needed. The Wesley Choices Support Program was that life line, I needed to feel somewhat normal - the ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ workshop and free wig hire services helped to provide me with the external resources; I needed understanding and a place to escape – the peer support network was always there with a comforting ear; and, the information events – all have been priceless.
