Mandy Barter set up her own charity My Cancer My Choices after surviving cancer in 2015. This operation which is entirely run by volunteers now offers treatments including reflexology and acupuncture at three NHS sites in Berkshire. The aim is to provide complementary therapies which assist in pain and stress during and after chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In a recent survey 97% of clients found that the therapies had helped them cope.
Mandy has tremendous enthusiasm and is truly making a great difference to the lives of men and women who have received such devastating diagnoses and often feel that there is nothing that they can do to help themselves. Its a remarkable achievement.
