Welcome to the 'Nenna Kind'
Centre Chesterfield's Cancer Drop In Centre
A new voluntary, self funding group will soon be able to offer families and friends of cancer sufferers a place to talk with and offer support to other people going through the same thing.
Barbara Wallace set up the group after her daughter Helen Hinde was diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago. Needing someone to talk to other than family or medical staff Barbara realised that there were no independent services available.
The name of the centre comes from Helen's family name, Nenna (her younger sister couldn't pronounce Helen and the alternative stuck!) and the fact that when Helen worked in New Whittington Primary school's nursery, a child sent her a Christmas card addressed to 'Mrs Kind'.
