Welcome to Manx Cancer Help
Message from Andrea Chambers, Chief Executive Officer - October 2014
Everyone at Manx Cancer Help has been very shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Ivy Cain. Ivy was a highly valued and much loved member of the team and worked more recently as a Complementary Therapist providing mainly Reiki treatments to many of our clients who are affected by cancer. Ivy joined Manx Cancer Help in 2001 as Office Administrator working alongside founding member, Eve Berridge.
In 2002, she attended an ‘open day’ at the Isle of Man Healing Centre where she received Reiki for the first time. Ivy had no prior knowledge of Reiki before this but came away from her session feeling completely energised, relaxed and grounded and inspired to the extent that she decided to start training as a Reiki practitioner.
Ivy has been an integral part of the developing services at Manx Cancer Help and her enthusiastic input, gentle humour and total reliability and devotion to her calling will be greatly missed by us all but will forever be highly appreciated.
In accordance with what Ivy would have wanted we are very pleased that the Reiki service will continue and we are delighted to have appointed Simon Capelen who was a good friend of Ivy’s and is a well-known and highly respected Reiki practitioner.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Manx Cancer Help based here at the Lisa Lowe Centre. Manx Cancer Help offers an essential space for people whose lives are affected by Cancer.
