Need support now?
No, no, I am not a doctor/counsellor/scientist and this site is not intended to be a source for medical advice. I can offer a few rubbish jokes and some tips from my own experience of having cancer, but if you need support from professionals, get in touch with your doctor or contact the NHS (or equivalent health service in your country).
Who else can help?
If you’re a patient, carer, friend, relative or anyone looking for more support, check out the following charities. They have all helped me so much, and you can find everything from information from professionals and peer support to care beyond the clinical and amazing opportunities to meet and share with people like you.
They would also all LOVE you to help raise the funds they need to keep being so amazing – but let me know if you donate/fundraise to/for them (I’d like to claim some credit).
