Claire’s Story

Claire has been coming to Fans FC sessions for the last few months. After being persuaded to join our programme by other participants whilst attending another cancer support group Claire hasn’t looked back.

Before her cancer diagnosis, Claire was always very fit, but afterwards she found it difficult to do all of the things that she used to do.

After getting involved with the walking football group of Fans FC, Claire said: “It’s brilliant!” and that everyone was “really kind, [and] passed me the ball even though I was useless!”

The sessions made Claire feel safe and comfortable, with both staff and participants giving space and paying close attention to the fact that her immune system was low due to chemotherapy.
