A new website has launched to provide information to help patients make the right DECISION and CHOICE about their treatment at the crucial time in their Breast Cancer diagnosis.
Jo Taylor is a 6 year breast cancer survivor and through her experiences has created the website www.abcdiagnosis.co.uk which was launched on the 6 year anniversary of her diagnosis with Breast Cancer.The website will provide information on breast reconstructions by means of a BRA -Breast Reconstruction Adviser, which will contain photos of patients reconstructions for other people to be able to view (with a secure log in) to help them make reconstruction decisions. The site will also help people to find surgeons, consultants, Hospitals and Cancer Networks. As well as providing diet, exercise tips, and health information, there will also be daily news from the UK and around the world on breast cancer to keep you up to date with new developments in treatments etc.
C21 Magazine is the UK's first free mainstream cancer publication. It is quite unique in terms of the information available to cancer patients and their families, as well as being of interest to healthcare professionals.The most remarkable aspect of C21 is that it brings together in one place expert knowledge, emotional support and news relating to cancer, making it that much easier for people to access information and reassurance.Unlike the national press the articles are not sensationalist or misleading in any way, and because it is an independent magazine C21 is committed to talking about cancer without pushing any kind of agenda. The primary concern is always to report issues in the most balanced and informative way possible. Meanwhile the sections on psychology, childhood cancer, fertility treatment, reconstructive surgery, legal advice, palliative care and more, means that every possible aspect of dealing with cancer is covered.
C21's mission is to help drive forward positive changes in our understanding and treatment of cancer, by creating a leading source of opinion and debate in a field of medicine which touches millions of us, and which cannot afford to be misunderstood or misrepresented.
TenderCush design & supply cushioned products offering comfort & support to the underarm wounds following breast cancer surgery.
In June 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had surgery to remove a lump and lymph nodes, this left 2 wounds, close together, underarm. This proved both painful & awkward in everyday situations.
I searched for products to help and found nothing, so I designed and made items which helped me greatly in recovery. The products are now produced by a quality textile manufacturer in the UK and are available via our website www.tendercush.co.uk
There are currently 3 items:-
Shaped Cushion - specially shaped cushion in "cuddle-soft" fabric, offers great comfort when sleeping, sitting watching tv etc & is designed to be clutched underarm. This has a removeable cover and additional covers can be supplied to be used if the other is being washed.
Travel Cushion - a design-registered product - with adjustable shoulder strap, can be used in the car or around the house, without the need to clutch underarm.
Cushioned Shoulder Bag - offers discreet protection when out and about. It is a truly liberating product. It is patented and design-registered.
It is fully cushioned, with adjustable shoulder strap so can be adjusted to where protection is required, and it looks and operates as a normal bag. During treatment, like many women, I lost all my hair, eye-brows and eye-lashes so it was definately not a time I wanted to draw attention to myself - so this helped greatly, by making me feel less vulnerable when out and about and without drawing attention to the fact that protection and support was required or being used.
The items are produced by a quality UK textile manufacturer and are available to buy online at www.tendercush.co.uk Our products are gift-wrapped and ship within 24 hours of order.
We at Chc Compressions love this idea and are happy to get our blogs known for useful information to help all the Pink Ladies!
