  • Hello Nana Jan,

    Thanks for getting in touch. My name is Denise, I am one of the Cancer Information Nurses on the Macmillan Support Line. Welcome to our online community.

    I am sorry to read about your metastatic breast cancer diagnosis but pleased you are doing very good on Trodelvy.

    Nurses on the Macmillan support line do not have access to NHS medical records therefore would always suggest contacting your Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) or Consultant for individualised guidance on foreign travel.

    We do have some information on our website about cancer and buying travel insurance which you can access here. You can also read more on the topic on the Cancer Research website here.

    As we are a charity, we are not in the position to promote any insurance company however we can suggest you contact the British Insurance Brokers’ Association for advice.

    I hope this information is useful. Please don’t hesitate to get back in contact by email, webchat or phone, if you need further information or support.


    The Macmillan Support Line offers practical, clinical, financial and emotional support. You can call us free from landlines and from most mobile phone networks* on 0808 808 00 00, 7 days a week, 8am – 8pm.
