About Robyn

Hi I am Robyn Volkers, I am a cancer support specialist nurse. I joined Maggie's as the Online Centre Head in November 2010.

You can read more about the role of cancer support specialists and the support we can offer in one of my blogs "Cancer support specialists"

I trained as a nurse in Oxford and have been working in cancer care in a variety of settings providing clinical care, information and support since 1991. I also have personal experience as a carer for my mother who had cancer and would have loved Maggie's.

I am delighted to be involved in developing Maggie's Online Centre to increase access to the programme of practical, emotional and social support that Maggie's offers to anyone with, worried about or affected by cancer in any way.

A keen musician I live in organised chaos in an Oxfordshire village with my family and assortment of animals and musical instruments.
