World Cancer Day: “It just means so much to know you’re not alone”

Posted on: Tuesday, 4th February 2020 by

Today is World Cancer Day. This year, we’ve decided to talk about the importance of friendships, talking and support. 

How you go through a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be a very personal experience, it can also be isolating at times. It can be hard to find others who can relate to what you’re going through and how you’re feeling. 

To mark this World Cancer Day, we want to say you’re not alone and are sharing stories from our volunteers. We hear from Mandy, diagnosed with stage 1b1 in 2015 , Laura, diagnosed with stage 3 in 2017 and Hayley, diagnosed in 2017.
