Together Against Cancer
The organisation has been driven by the challenges of providing grants, aid, and support to the victims of cancer. Working with support groups for cancer patients is a vital part of their treatment and rehabilitation. Our efforts will continue to be aimed at making these support groups available. Also, providing educational, emotional, financial, and spiritual support will continue to be at the core of our programs.
There are more than 100,000 young adults living with cancer in the UK today. They lack support because little is known about the challenges they face and few services are dedicated to them.

The Victoria’s Promise charity was founded to fulfil a promise; a promise of someone so brave, caring and warm that it has inspired a movement – that person is Victoria Van der Westhuizen. Having lost her father and grandmother to cancer and watched her mother battle through to eventually beat it, Victoria vowed to fight back. Tragically, before she was given the opportunity to achieve her goals and just two months after diagnosis, Vicki lost her own valiant battle with the disease. Victoria’s Promise now stands as a beacon of light and hope; a legacy to continue the care and warmth that Victoria embodied.
Victoria’s Promise have dedicated themselves to providing care in areas that are currently grossly under catered for. Victoria’s Promise and their partners are pioneering training and supportive services so that we can hand hold young women throughout their cancer journey and give them every chance of the best possible outcome. Whilst ensuring the journey back to health is as small an ordeal as it possibly can be.
