SWF Cancer Support Group

This page will be updated as material becomes available.

Have you, or someone you love, been affected by a cancer diagnosis?

Would it help to talk to others in the same situation?

Would you like support and advice from other patients with a similar diagnosis?

If the answer is ‘yes’, then join our online community on Facebook. Search for South Woodham Ferrers Cancer Support Group or email me for more information:

For some time now I’ve had a germ of an idea to set up a support group within South Woodham for those affected by cancer. As someone with cancer myself, I know how alone this diagnosis can make us feel. I am a member of several online ‘communities’ and receive and give support to others. It is very helpful to get advice from those that have first hand experience, about side effects and the best methods or products to cope with them.

This won’t be a forum with medical or clinical input just support from other patients.

I have set up a ‘closed’ Facebook group for patients and carers, so that we can get to know each other. We could then arrange meet ups for coffee and chat, either in South Woodham or each others homes. Basically we could progress it however we want to.

You will need a Facebook account. Use the search facility and type in South Woodham Ferrers Cancer Support Group SWFCSG and look under the ‘groups’ heading. As this is a closed group, you will need to apply to join

If you would like to contact me or want more information, you can email me at:

I am Gill Hubbert and for 26 years I was a member of the admin team at one of our local Primary Schools. Then I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Bowel Cancer and my life changed. I have now retired and have some time on my hands to do other things. This being one of them.
