It is with deepest sadness that we must announce the death of our great friend Susan Moore.

Susan was the driving force behind HCCN the charity. Based on her own experience and needs, Susan had the vision to create a cancer charity providing an holistic approach to managing a diagnosis of cancer. Susan worked tirelessly to improve the wellbeing of cancer patients across Huntingdonshire. She wanted people to take control for themselves - she was passionate about giving people the information and tools to remain in control of their diagnosis and not be dictated to.

Despite her own health issues, Susan lived her life to the full, always maintaining a positive outlook and a realistic view of her own mortality. She was straight talking, honest, and with the hugest smile - truly an authentic personality.

Founded in 2015 by Susan, HCCN the charity has gone from strength to strength under her leadership. Seeming to work 24/7, she had a passion to help people with a diagnosis of cancer: bringing them together to support each other, managing volunteers and programmes, coaching others and always looking for the next innovation.

Together with the HCCN nurses, the trustees, volunteers and activity leaders she has built a legacy that will be remembered and taken forward.

Statement on our activities:

Details have just been released regarding our conference:

“We very much hope that you are well and coping with this strange situation in our lives.

As you know HCCN normally holds two conferences per year and sadly, this year we were forced to cancel the April one due to COVID. We realise that things will not have changed significantly by the next conference date - 3rd November - and so we are planning to hold a virtual conference using the Zoom facility.

We would be very grateful if you could tell us whether you would like to attend such a conference and if not, why that would be a problem for you? If it would be due to the lack of computer or tablet then we hope to be in a position shortly to arrange for the loan of one or two tablets for the event. Might this change things for you? Please say in your reply to Amanda (aburridge@nhs.net) whether you would need a tablet in order to take part - if you have a computer then you can use that.

Please reply to this as soon as you can so that we can get on with the planning. If you need support to access zoom, we can look into that with you too.”
