Review for Pseudomyxoma Survivor, Warwick, , United Kingdom
In May 2018 I was diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, which is a very rare form of cancer affecting around two people per million each year!
Whilst I was waiting for treatments / information from my health care team, I took great comfort In finding support and information from Pseudomyxoma Survivor. I was able to learn more about the disease and understand what was going on in my body. This helped me mentally prepare for what I was about to face.
I also found friends via the support network-who I was able to ask advice, seek answers and also act as a friend for them and others.
During my treatment and aftercare, the team were extremely supportive and remained in contact about how my treatment went. The best thing for me was when I received an amazing box of balloons from the charity. This made my day and I was so grateful and amazed to have received them.
I continue to support the charity and use the networks I’ve made to seek support both for myself and also my new friends which have been made from the charity.
