"Having cancer can feel isolating. Even talking directly to someone else with cancer can make you feel this way, as it’s difficult to relate to someone facing their own cancer gremlins and who are experiencing different things! Chat rooms have their place but it’s all about cancer! There needs to be somewhere people with cancer can find different ways to approach coping; a selection of suggestions as how to make a grotty situation a little better; different techniques to try. It’s good to get information about your cancer type and treatments etc. but what about how “to be”? - Megan Fletcher
