One of the connections we have made this year is with National Voices, the coalition of charities that stands for people being in control of their health and care. National Voice has drawn our attention to a new report published by Cancer Research UK, ‘Securing a cancer workforce for the best outcomes’.
One of the recommendations of the Charity Commission, the body that regulates charities in the UK, is that charities work with other charities. This is extremely important to the trustees of Pseudomyxoma Survivor and key to a lot of the things we do.
I am finally getting round to informing you all of my recent visit to West Yorkshire & Harrogate Cancer Alliance. We were invited by Cancer 52 and the meeting was a great and informative one.
In 2015, I had cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC for pseudomxyoma peritonei. To thank Pseudomyxoma Survivor for all the support I was given and all the friends I have made through the charity, I’m doing the Southend 10K to raise funds for the charity. I would have been so alone and desperate without the charity and I cannot thank you enough x
