Colvin’s Story

When Colvin received his Prostate cancer diagnosis, he was able to access our personalised cancer support programme via his wife’s employee benefits package, through her organisation.

Read on to find out why Colvin thinks more organisations need to invest and provide support like this to help their employees through times of unexpected and life-changing health events.
“I think it would be an advantage if all of my colleagues had access to this type of support. We have a high percentage of male workers and I’ve taken it upon myself to increase awareness for them to check themselves and seek advice if they are concerned.
The NHS are incredibly overwhelmed and can only assign a finite amount of time and resource to each person who is undergoing treatment.
Reframe were able to be both a listening ear and provide practical support that I wouldn’t have received anywhere else. My dedicated support team were able to help me with my return to work, as well as source me with a universal toilet card and radar key – all of which enabled me to continue working, travelling and attending business meetings with confidence.
The information received from the team and resources I received from my team were fantastic. This additional help meant a lot and gave me the confidence to tackle this journey with positivity.”
