Robert learned about Coaching around the time he was looking for a meaningful way to mark 10 years of being cancer free.
He set up a website to mark his ten year milestone through fundraising, with an ambitious goal of raising $10,000. His family kick-started the campaign with a bake sale at a neighbourhood garage sale.
“People were incredibly responsive. We raised $10,000 in six days,” Robert says. “Many people told me they know someone with cancer and they’re going to tell them about Cancer Coaching.”
Robert was delighted to hear that, as he personally understands the need for free, professional support. “It’s hard to find space for yourself when you’re sick. Your loved ones are dealing with your cancer as well. Cancer Coaching offers a place just for you. It unlocks space for you to breathe and gain confidence in the decisions you have to make.”
Today, Robert is challenging others to fundraise for the Cancer Foundation. “When cancer strikes, it has a huge impact. Cancer Coaching offers ways to support the person and the family. They use a personal approach where it isn’t about cancer, it’s about the people. And we all need to come together to support that.”
