Survivors

You may find that you see the world differently after cancer. Perhaps you feel that others don't understand your experience and expect you to 'get back to normal'. Cancer and its treatment can bring a host of practical challenges, from changes in appearance and body function to managing the emotional and social impacts.

Come and share your experiences at our online forum specially created for cancer survivors, carers, family, friends and work colleagues. As a participant, you will learn about the possible changes, challenges and opportunities you may face after completing cancer treatment. You will also have the opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey, and share tips, ideas and activities to help you live your life well.

Hello couragious people.

I'm Fiona, a single mother of two children (12 and 9) and I have survived Thyroid cancer. I had a severe case, as it was misdiagnosed in 2007 and thankfully found and correctly diagnosed in late 2010. I have had my whole thyroid, 66 lymph nodes and tissue surrounding the back of my tongue removed. I was given a life expectancy of 10 years and i'm now 2 years into that expectancy. All this being said, I am happy with life and like you all, I'm a fighter..and I'm quite the stubborn one at that.
