So very true, only those who've been there know & understand how it is.
Absolutely bloody brilliant to see the online community making it into a Mac advert. And very nicely handled. I believe this ad captures what we do here really well.
Great to see the ad but it's a shame it's not mobile friendly. Couldn't read the words on my phone. It's a shame as it would be good If, once it goes live it could become sharable content.
Well done though.
Great idea, the online community is the first place I go to for advice, the more it's advertised and shared the more affect it will have on those going through the darkest times of our lives.
Looks very good avd shows the true feelings of the people that have been in cancer world or who are in this world now
Not very good on mobile
Thanks for putting this video out - I believe I have seen some ads on TV but as I record everything that I want to watch, I tend to fast-forward through the ad breaks.
I think it is a very worthwhile campaign. I know I have been helped and I have also recommended friends diaganosed with cancer to go online to the forum. It is very reassuring to know you are not alone; that there is support out there - not just for the emotional reaction, but also for expert advice.
I have realised that being diagnosed with cancer puts you on three journeys: physical, emotional and administrative. From my own experiences, I know that the administrative side of being diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening illness is often ignored, and is also the last thing you want to deal with when you are coping with so many other things. Knowing that there is a charity out there that can help with not just the effect on your life, and on your family's life, but can also offer positive advice on how to claim benefits of all kinds is very reassuring. Everything in one place - couldn't ask for more.
You are doing a fantastic job, and I really appreciate everything you do.
It hit the button. You captured the horrible sense of hopelessness we all experience and then the feeling of relief that someone is listening, understands and will give helpful advice. Also that you can share experiences on line.Brilliant.
Great job and great idea to use the online community on your adverts. It is my main support every time I have a question or feel worried.
Everyone should know this exits.
It is brilliant :)
Brilliant. A really positive message. So many people do not realise that this sort of help exists. Thank you.
A great video showing how important it is for sufferers not feel isolated or alone. I have found the site to be invaluable and inspirational and a great source of advice, support and comfort. You are doing a fantastic job, keep up the good work. Thanks so much, Bill
