Here is a reminder of how YOU could be helping young people with cancer…
Angel was treated at St George’s Hospital for Hodgkin lymphoma.
“I burst into tears when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. I’m a gymnast, and have always been very active, and I’d been well apart from a lump in my neck. It was only a year after my brother’s death and I should have been at home mourning with my family, instead I was having a scan to see how far the cancer had spread.”
“Claire Fowler, Teenage Cancer Trust’s Clinical Nurse Specialist, was with me from my diagnosis and throughout my whole journey.
“When I heard that I was in remission I was happy and felt like I could breathe again. But it’s an emotional rollercoaster and life after cancer is harder than you expect. I’m having to rebuild who I am and readjust. Luckily the support from Claire didn’t stop just because my treatment stopped. She understands that people don’t just go back to normal and she gave me advice.”
