Chronic Illness support & those affected by cancer

Medical intervention and life

Maybe unexpected events in life have been thrown at you- Your life has just imploded in being given a cancer, degenerative or terminal diagnosis or have been struggling consistently with ill health or in finding yourself adopting a caring role for a loved one. This can make you hesitant reaching out to others, feel isolated or alone. 


You may feel as if life has stopped, loss confidence, focus or direction. You exist but have stopped living or find it hard to adjust or accept self or the changes you are going through. Perhaps you struggle talking to family or friends about how you are really feeling.

Sometimes life can become a treadmill of appointments, medication or treatment regimes leaving you with multiple challenges in physical ailments or experiencing mental anguish without warning.
