Julia Fallon – Trustee
My involvement with the charity began in 2011 when I was a client and received much needed support after my diagnosis with breast cancer. Upon recovery I then became a volunteer to help others in a similar situation to myself. I became a Trustee in 2014 when we moved to the new Stonydelph building to show my commitment to the charity. I believe in the charity so much because I feel we are unique and provide much needed services to our clients.
My main role at the centre is supporting the clients. Having been through cancer myself I can relate to them and their needs. I can also share my experiences with them and provide an insight into how cancer affects you as a person, and can also demonstrate that there is life after cancer.
I love my time at the centre because the people are friendly, there is a sense of community and it feels like an ever expanding family. People often expect it to be quite a depressing place but we actually have lots of fun. We also have lots of events that help to create a great social life for people who may not ordinarily be able to socialise.
