Links and Information

You can find a lot of useful information about cancer treatment and research on the websites of our partner charities.  In addition, we’ll add anything we find from other organisations and individuals that might be helpful to anyone currently being treated for cancer, and for their families.

We’ve been contacted by an organisation, the Mesothelioma Centre, who publish information about asbestos related cancers.  It’s a US site, so some of the information (about where to find treatment, and about legal options, for example) is specific to our American supporters, but there is also plenty of general information about these cancers which may be useful to anyone affected.

There’s more information about mesothelemia from Mesothelioma Cancer Support: Mesothelioma.net is a US advocacy and support group dedicated to providing all the latest in cancer research, treatment, and aid. Newcomers and patients alike can also learn everything there is to know about the disease, explore available up-to-date treatments, stay current with news on mesothelioma in our article feed, veteran support, 24/7 online assistance, financial aid, and so much more. They are also ‘Health On the Net’ certified as a trustworthy site for health information (HONcode Badge located bottom right of site) and are periodically reviewed and fact-checked by medical professionals and they sponsor The American Cancer Society, the MD Cancer Center, and the Make a Wish Foundation.

Elsewhere on our site, we will be focusing on the personal experiences of people directly affected by cancer – one of our first actions as a charity was to publish our founder Tim Richardson’s diary of his cancer journey, which you can buy here.  We hope to offer a rich variety of experiences (good and bad), outcomes (good and bad) and individual responses to draw upon. There’s lots of information to be gained from these individual accounts, and from the associated links.
