If you or someone you know is ever unlucky enough to get the big ‘C’ diagnosis then tell them to go to Beechwood, there isn’t a place like it anywhere. The staff are amazing and so understanding, it’s the one place where you don’t have to pretend and plaster on your ‘brave face’.

I think it works so well because you get a full day which is just about you and even when you are ready to move on it will always be there in the future if ever you need it. I was also very lucky to meet some fantastic people there all on a similar journey who will remain friends for life and who I wouldn’t of met if it hadn’t been for Beechwood!
