My Name Is NOT Cancer

Welcome to My Name Is NOT Cancer - helping create a more positive tomorrow, today. 

My Name Is NOT Cancer (aka MNINC: pronounced 'emenink') is a cancer support organisation empowering 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:

My Name Is NOT Cancer is a cancer website with a difference: it's been written by people just like you. Once you've had a browse around, if you would like to share your advice on My Name Is NOT Cancer and help others facing similar situations, please contact us using the form provided.
