Bereavement Support Group

Don't give up now
If you have lost a partner to pseudomyxoma peritonei or appendix cancer, then it can be difficult to find someone who understands what you’ve been through or are going through. You want to communicate with others that understand the disease but you don’t feel that the main group is right for you. Our group is a private, secure place for peer to peer support to share grief and coping mechanisms and to support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between.

Only fellow members can see you’re in the group and read your posts. And best of all, we all understand what you’re going through. You can expect a warm welcome from others and have the opportunity to talk about yourself and your experiences — if you want to. You’re not expected to talk about anything and it can take a few visits before feeling comfortable enough to talk about personal matters.

So if you’re the surviving partner of a patient of this disease and would like some mutual support, please complete this application. The administrators should contact you within 48 hours. Please be patient, we are all volunteers, cancer patients ourselves, so at times it may take us a little longer to respond.

If you have concerns that your application has been missed, please check your spam folder first. If you still don’t have the message, you can email us or message us via our Facebook page.

I just re-found an article and while it isn’t specifically about pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) or appendix cancer, it is very relevant to everyone diagnosed with any cancer and I remember reading it and that it helped me with where my diagnosis (and two recurrences) put me and those around me.

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

Multi-disciplinary Diagnostic Centres

Through Cancer 52, Pseudomyxoma Survivor has received a special invitation to view a multi-disciplinary diagnostic centre (MDC) in action. MDCs are being trialled here in the UK and they are set up so that patients who present with non-specific symptoms can go to a one-stop shop and have all of the tests they require to help with a diagnosis.
