Stories from across the world

From patients and from caregivers

I found Pseudomyxoma Survivor shortly after being diagnosed with stage 4 appendix cancer. I thought my life was over. Through the information, support and friendships I have gained from this organisation I am hopeful and currently healthy. They have literally been a lifeline to me in a way that supplements the excellent work that the Health services provided. They understood and encouraged me all the way.


appendix cancer patient

I was diagnosed with appendix cancer in June 2021 after my appendix ruptured. I have since undergone cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC and am due to begin a further course of chemotherapy.
Whilst recovering from surgery in Basingstoke I was first made aware of this fantastic charity. Finding other people that gave similar experiences and reading their stories has helped me understand and cope with my battle against this disease. Pseudomyxoma Survivor has also helped financially through the grant scheme. My claim was handled quickly and has really helped the burden of losing income whilst receiving treatment.
I know that I have much further to go in my journey and there will be hard times ahead, but I also now know Pseudomyxoma Survivor is there to help me and my family through it and that makes a massive difference! Thank you.


Appendix cancer patient

What a fantastic charity, they have helped me financially, with advice and to impart knowledge, to meet other patients and with a series of fantastic online seminars and courses. Without Pseudomyxoma Survivor, my day to day life would be significantly more difficult. They are at the heart of new and novel research and treatment options and I am pleased to have been able to support them through my own fundraising. Thank you.



Amazing, supportive group. Without Pseudomyxoma Survivor I don’t know where I would have been. Linked me up with a buddy, who has been invaluable. Also provided me with a grant due to being unable to work at present. Cannot thank this charity enough.
