A charity set up in the US almost a decade ago is to bring its fundraising efforts to help those suffering from cancer to the UK.
We Support U’s goal is to improve health prevention, screening and survival among undeserved, low-income communities and to be the comprehensive link between healthcare providers, cancer patients and their families and community resource
The charity is a community-based non-profit organisation providing support services for individuals and families.
It was originally set up in 2013 by Bertha Tiznado of the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization in San Diego County, but is now spreading its wings overseas.
To help with this, Ms Tiznado has appointed former East Midlands businessman Sukhi Ghuman, CEO of US-based Octavian USA, as Chair, and Reshma Sheikh and Amanda Butler, Managing Director and Commercial Director respectively of Nottinghamshire-based facilities management firm Octavian UK to lead the UK efforts to raise funds for (predominantly breast) cancer sufferers that cannot afford treatment and screening.
“I have more than 28 years’ experience of collaborating with the Oncology center where Sukhi is in charge. We met in a meeting and I admired his professionalism, charisma and desire to help our people who are most in need,”
