Review for Pseudomyxoma Survivor, Warwick, , United Kingdom
When I was first diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP), I wanted to keep it to myself. I thought that being involved with or meeting other patients would somehow take something away from being diagnosed with something so rare. How wrong could I be!
I have volunteered with the charity for a number of years now and it has given me a focus in my life during my recovery. At times it's challenging as no one really wants to do admin, do they? But it is really worth it to see the positive effect the charity has one people's lives.
I've regained my confidence in y own abilities and met so many lovely people who understand what I have been through. I hope I've made a difference in some of their lives as well. I've taken on challenges and learnt new skills and can honestly say it's been an amazing, fulfilling and life-changing experience.
