You may just have found out that you have cancer - and it isn't easy to get your head around. There are lots of different types, names and techie terms used to describe what's going on in your body and how you're feeling.
It's no wonder that you can feel overwhelmed and don't know where to start with all the information out there. And it's the same for your friends and family too.

Where we do not have the expertise we can point you safely in the right direction. From explaining the different types, to how to talk to your family and friends, and those close to you.
