For people living with incurable cancer only
This group is aimed only at people who have had an incurable diagnosis themselves, as we have had feedback that they would like a safe space to share their feelings openly among themselves.
If you have a loved one with incurable cancer, you are very welcome on the Online Community as a whole, but we would ask that you respect the wishes of people with incurable cancer and not post in this particular group. Instead, you will find really good support in the Carers group, the relevant cancer type group and the supporting someone with incurable cancer group.
Worried sick about this transfere from DLA to PIP and the book of questions I will have to ftll in..I need help
Hi Tis just me,
The forms for benefits can be totally baffling. Have you a Macmillan nurse who could assist you? I do not have an allocated nurse but there is a Macmillan nurse at the hospital that I attend who helps with things like this. Alternatively if you ring the Macmillan helpline (0808 808 00 00) and ask to speak to someone about benefits they will be able to advise you.
When I applied for PIP the Macmillan nurse completed a DS1500 which meant that I did not have to complete all the other forms.
I hope that you can get some assistance in sorting this out.
love and hugs,
Hi.thank you for your reply.i am seeing my gp tomorrow so will ask about ds1500.will also basking him about being allocated a Macmillan nurse for myself.thanks for the hugs.x
