This is a great opportunity to gain experience in a very small charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones.
Shining a light on our volunteers – Anne
My first event was on a conference stand in Paris for two days, when I tried very hard to avoid saying “pseudomyxoma” as I did not know how to pronounce it!
Shining a light on our volunteers – Susie
I was more than happy to become a volunteer admin, remembering how important I found the reassurance of the woman I spoke to before my surgery and the help and support I received from the group after it.

To be able to chat with others and offer just a tiny virtual hug or an emoji smile can make all the difference. It did for me at a very scary time.
Shining a Light on our Volunteers – Lucie
I’m achieving something here. I matter. I am making a difference. Feeling a useful part of the volunteer team perhaps pays back some of the support I’ve received.
Shining a light on our volunteers – Georgina
I’m keen to show my children that volunteering your time and energy is important and that despite my medical retirement I’m not giving up on my values.
EuroPMP International Workshop on pseudomyxoma peritonei
In December, Susan and Angela have been asked to present at the EuroPMP International Workshop on pseudomyxoma peritonei. It is a privilege to be asked to present to this network of experts from many fields, including surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, radiologists, molecular biologists, bioinformaticians and allied health care professionals of which Angela is a participant.
We were so happy to receive this box of knitted items from Pseudomyxoma Survivor friend, Margaret. Knitted by Margaret and her friend Marion, they have donated them to Pseudomyxoma Survivor so that we can offer them to you.
How can you help us?
We’ve a number of things that we’d like help with at the moment and we’ll be putting together a fuller description of them all shortly. If you think you can help, please get in touch. If you think there’s something you could do to support those affected by PMP and appendix cancers that we’re not already doing, we’d love to hear from you!
We’re looking for trustees!
We are now looking for able and motivated individuals to join our Board of Trustees, to help lead and guide our important work. Mainly, we are looking for people who are excited by the work Pseudomyxoma Survivor does, share our values and will play an active part in the work of our Board. Is this you?
