  • Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is an informative and supportive place to be.

    I was diagnosed with the skin version of melanoma so have to keep out of the sun as much as possible. Because of this I take Vitamin D as my body might not produce enough itself.

    I have done a search in this group to see if anyone mentions takings vitamins but drew a blank I'm afraid. Macmillan don't recommend taking any particular vitamins to fight cancer but advocate a healthy, balanced diet. You can read more about what they recommend here.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
