Review for Pseudomyxoma Survivor, Warwick, , United Kingdom

Rating: 5 stars  

Being a cancer patient with any type of cancer is scary. For me, having Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (aka PMP) and not being able to find a cancer charity that could help me on my journey because most charities don't include PMP in their list of cancers they help, was even scarier. I am very thankful that Pseudomyxoma Survivor charity exists because they helped me when I needed help. Without their help I wouldn't have been able to get the treatment I needed for my cancer. They are the one charity that would help me and it's because of their help that I was able to get the cancer treatment I needed to beat this cancer. I am single with limited income and I had to travel over 800 miles one way, alone, to get to a cancer specialist who knew how to treat my cancer. I had to undergo a radical and very dangerous 18 hour cancer operation, and then stay for months by that hospital to recover from my surgery. Then I had to return and make that 800 mile trip every six months to see my cancer doctors for checkups. The grant they gave me was a lifesaver. The Pseudomyxoma Survivor organization is a wonderful group of people. They helped me by providing me with a grant I needed to travel to get my cancer treatment and follow-up tests and have the money I needed to eat while i was there. Without their help I wouldn't have been able to receive the life saving medical care I so desperately needed for this horrible disease. Pseudomyxoma Survivor does a fantastic job of supporting patients and caretakers. The advice on their website has been invaluable to me, especially when I needed to find a Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Specialist who could handle the extensive cancer I had, as well as provide valuable information about this rare cancer that I had never heard of before. Because of Pseudomyxoma Survivor's help I am cancer free. Pseudomyxoma Survivor is a first class operation who goes above and beyond to help cancer patients and raise awareness of this cancer.
