The nurses are so supportive and have helped me no end. I don't know what I'd have done without you. Being able to speak to somebody one on one who really knows their stuff is invaluable.

"I'm embarrassed by my problem"
Because we’re not answering your questions face-to-face, you may find it easier to talk about it over the phone or online. That's what we're here for.
"What should I ask at my next doctor's appointment?"
We can help you prioritise the ‘what-to-ask questions’ so you leave your appointment with the information you need.
"I'm struggling with side effects"
We can talk with you about how you're feeling and provide practical tips, help and support.

"I've been told my cancer isn't curable. What can I expect?"
