Hi, I’m new to the group, so I just wanted to say hi and is there anyone from west London in the group?

  • Hi and welcome to the Online Community. You don't mention what type of cancer you have so to get the most support on these scary journeys I'd advise to look through the list of cancers and join the relevant group. There you'll be able to chat with others on what are described as emotional roller coaster rides.

    It’s always helpful to others if you write a little something (or a lot) about yourself and your journey to date. You can enter it into your profile (click on your username and select “Profile”) It’s helpful to other members with a similar diagnosis who can then hopefully answer your questions. It also means that you don't have to keep writing the same thing over and over. You can amend or update it at any time. 

    To find more information covering diagnosis and treatments there are pages covering most types of cancers which can be found on our Online Information and Support Section

    Macmillan Support Services also offer lots of information, support, financial guidance or just someone to listen. It’s free to call 0808 808 0000. Most services are available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week. Have a look by Clicking here to see what is available and we also have our Ask an Expert section, but do allow two to three working days for replies from our expert team.

    Sending you welcoming hugs B xx

  • Hi . Anyone who receives a cancer diagnosis will be anxious and overwhelmed at first so you're not alone there. I would suggest you join our supportive Breast cancer group where you'll be able to discuss your fears and get support from others facing the same situation. Just click on the link I've created and join. Copy your post to introduce yourself and soon others will be along soon to chat.

    Hugs, B xx
