Hi my name is Chris and I am a cancer patient. Through my personal experience and my current work, involving people affected by cancer I have learned that you can be affected by a continuing feeling of isolation. That is what has prompted me to create this blog and tell you that this is normal. The treatment that we receive from the N.H.S is great, but there is so much more support which people need and is very difficult to find. I have spoken to hundreds of patients and they all tell me that it is so helpful to speak to other people who experienced similar things. This blog will say things as they actually are, and in language that people understand. Clear and to the point! I am not attempting to offer advice or medical help, just a platform where people can come and communicate with others and share experiences. I will be very open about my own experiences, so please feel free to share yours.
I am an official support partner of the Grove Hotel in Bournemouth. The only hotel in the UK specifically for people affected by cancer and other life limiting conditions.
