What We Do
ChemoHero is a registered charity based in North Devon founded by Lisa Wallis after her
Lisa felt supported by her family, friends and medical professionals but struggled with the fact everything appeared very negative surrounding the word cancer and so she founded ChemoHero.
ChemoHero work with local businesses,community groups and tirelessly fund raise to produce boxes of kindness filled with useful and luxury items that are then given to people with cancer who are receiving intravenous chemotherapy.
The ChemoHero boxes are given out at the North Devon District Hospital in the Seamoor unit on a patients first treatment or are hand delivered by our dedicated volunteers through a referral process.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February this year. It was then I was given my Chemo hero box. It was such a lovely gift to receive, and such a nice surprise. It was full of goodies, which I’ve started using and found really helpful.
A lot of thought and kindness has gone into these boxes, and it was much appreciated.
Thank you XGemma
