Daniel’s story

Daniel was in his twenties when he was first diagnosed with cancer. At 33 he had to have brain surgery for a new tumour and 12 months of chemotherapy.

He and his partner, Jade, were in real financial difficulties while he was off work recuperating.The couple had been living in a rented flat, which was cold and damp and in a noisy street.

The council found them a more suitable Housing Association property, but all their savings had been exhausted and they could not afford to pay the
advance rent. They were very worried about how they would manage and turned to us for support.

Daniel was delighted when we agreed to help and he and Jade are now settled in their new new flat.

He is feeling much less stressed and better able to cope with the difficult times ahead.
