We appreciate these are worrying times. You might have concerns or questions on staying safe, caring for a loved one, looking after your mental health and many more.
We wanted to let you know that we have a team of friendly experts on our Community Forum who you can talk to and ask questions anytime.
Ask Liz, oncology specialist nurse
Liz has been a registered nurse for 25 years, 20 of which have been spent working with people living with cancer. She currently manages a chemotherapy unit in Essex and cannot imagine doing anything else apart from oncology nursing. Liz has also worked in a variety of oncology specialist nurse roles including breast and blood cancers and has a in-depth understanding of what patients embarking on or completing cancer treatments need most advice about or help with finding out information on. Coupled with this, Liz is also a cancer survivor herself having been diagnosed 18 years ago undergoing both chemo and radiotherapy so has been on the other side of the fence as well.
Ask Karin, emotional wellbeing advisor
Karin is a psychotherapist, writer and podcast host based in London, UK. She specialises in support with the emotional and mental impact of cancer and offers support through all stages of the cancer experience (diagnosis, treatment, remission, recurrence, living with cancer, terminal cancer, loss and grief). She works with clients affected by cancer (including relatives and friends) in London and globally online. You can find more information on her website.
Karin has been diagnosed with breast cancer twice, and has also lost relatives and friends to the illness. The combination of her professional training and varied personal experiences makes Karin well placed to understand and assist others affected by cancer (including relatives, friends, colleagues and medical professionals).
