Welcome to My Name Is NOT Cancer
My Name Is NOT Cancer aka MNINC (pronounced 'emenink') is a cancer support organisation helping empower the individual to maintain identity and a sense of self when affected by a cancer diagnosis through our website, the MNINC Publication, and our social media on Facebook and Twitter @TeamMNINC
We hope the information we provide will help you understand a little of what it's like to have cancer and why it's important to not be defined by it.
Your name is NOT cancer and cancer does not define you - you are still YOU!
"We understand you were a person with a life before diagnosis and believe you will be after. The struggle, is being the person with a life separate from cancer whilst being in the grip of the illness." - Fiona Fletcher (CEO)
The MNINC philosophy is that:
- YOU STAND OUT... your illness doesn't! - that cancer doesn't define you, you can still be you!
- Survivorship Starts NOW! - from diagnosis, throughout the treatment process, you survive today and tomorrow.
- Communication is Key! - because there is never an unimportant question if it's concerning you.
