Catching up

Hello what a whirl it has been since the beginning of the year – so I thought time for a catch up!

Thank you so much for all the feedback and comments  from  both old and new members following our recent online newsletter  -  much appreciated...

have you visited our new information website Maggie’s  Cancerlinks  if you have the time we would love to know what you think  and/or any suggestions for information to be added.

I have been chatting privately with lots of you.  I am always happy to receive your messages so if you have a question or want to talk something over quietly you can message myself and other members privately .  I may not always be visible but there is  a cancer support specialist here during weekdays.  Jude our online benefits advisor is also on hand so if you need some help please post a message – either on the message boards or privately and we will always answer as soon as we can. 

We get quite a few requests for involvement in research and requests for feedback from using our centres...  There’s no obligation but If you are interested in being involved with any future projects  or have suggestions for any improvements we could make here online then please let me know.

 I am also looking for some book reviewers – if any of you have recently read a cancer  related book that you think others might find helpful and have a few minutes to write a quick review could you post it in the book thread  ( I read a lot but I can’t manage all of them!) 

 Two of our Online support groups  currently have places our carers group which runs on Tuesday evenings 7-8pm and Connections our bereavement group Monday 7-8pm   please let me know if you are interested or go  to  our groups  page where you can find out more and sign up. 

best wishes
