There are support groups in most places – it’s just a case of seeking them out! Thankfully, with the wonders of the Internet, they’re much easier to find!

Macmillan can help you find support groups near you with the help of your postcode – go here to see more: http://www.macmillan.org.uk/in-your-area/choose-location.html

If you’d prefer to remain at home, there’s also a big online community at Macmillan who you can talk with on all sorts of topics: http://community.macmillan.org.uk/

Cancer Research UK runs a service that allows you to talk to a nurse on 0808 800 4040

Volunteering & fundraising also brings you together with others who have been in your situation – I did the Shine Walk half marathon in London in 2013 & it was such an amazing experience!

There are lots of regional charities too who can provide a helping hand or a chat with a volunteer – I think talking to a stranger can sometimes be beneficial as they can give you an objective opinion. Ask your social worker about any charities in your area.

Alternatively, I’m always here for a chat – drop me a message below!

You’re not alone,
