Community Fundraiser for the Helen Rollason Heal Cancer Charity

Helen Rollason

I was delighted to have as my guest on Wednesday (26th Nov) Anne Brown from the Helen Rollason Heal Cancer Charity as a "Legend in your own Lunchtime".

Anne is organising many fundraising events to raise money for the charity this year and next and she hopes to take part in a parachute jump in 2009!!!

As a lunchtime legend Anne played a few songs that she likes that included:

Leona Lewis' Run and Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Anne is a great friend of Phoenix98FM will be back on "Eat my Lunch" on the 8th of December. If you would like to contact her click on the website below and follow the links.

About the charity:

The Helen Rollason Heal Cancer Charity offers therapeutic support and development to men, women and their supporters following a cancer diagnosis. The Charity was named after Helen Rollason MBE the BBC sports journalist who died of cancer in 1999. She shared the vision of her oncologist, Professor Nellive Davidson, that people should be treated as a whole and not just their illness. In her desire to help him, Helen gave her name and image to help attract national and international support.
Before she died she said:

"Good quality of life whilst coping with cancer is the most important gift a sick person can receive, it should be available to everyone."

The Charity has opened four cancer care centres with a fifth in the pipeline. It also has a five-day residential programme in Co. Donegal, Ireland, called the Live Well Experience. The Charity does not receive any government money, relying solely on funding from the community. The aim of the Charity is to establish a network of centres and services to support people from the time of their diagnosis.
