"Support at the Fern Centre"

About: Cancer Services / Living With & Beyond Cancer (Fern Centre)

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer in November 2020 which turned my world upside down.

I started my Chemo in December 2020 and from the start was offered great support from Tasmin and the staff at the Fern Centre.

They arranged a wig fitting appointment for if/when I lost my hair.

I had a make up session where I was given lots of products and advice to help with my appearance- no eyebrows and eyelashes !!

And also Reflexology with Sarah who is amazing to help recover from the effects of my treatment.

They keep me up to date with regular emails about what services are available.

They have been a great help at the darkest time of my life… thank you so much xxx
