Sally's story– how Penny Brohn wellbeing therapies gave me my identity back


When Sally was diagnosed with cancer, it was a frightening experience for her. Amongst dealing with her physical side effects, Sally was also struggling with her emotional side effects and felt she had lost her identity.

I lost my hair, I lost my eyebrows, my eyelashes and ultimately lost my identity

Through our partnership with Penny Brohn UK, the national charity specialising in an integrated and whole person approach to cancer support, we’re able to offer a range of wellbeing therapies alongside treatment to ensure we can meet the holistic needs of our patients.

Alongside her treatment, Sally was able to access our integrated cancer care pathway which includes Penny Brohn Wellbeing services such as acupuncture, reflexology and counselling.
